NEW YORK, NY -The Center for Byzantine & Modern Greek Studies in collaboration with the Center for Hellenic Studies of the Stony Brook University present an Online Tour of the Bouboulina Museum titled “The life and actions of heroine Laskarina Bouboulina. An introduction to the Bouboulina Museum” on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 at 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm.

Pavlos Demertzis-Bouboulis, President of the Bouboulina Museum, will present the life and actions of his famous ancestor, naval commander Laskarina Bouboulina. Viewers will also have the opportunity of a virtual look inside the heroine’s three century old home.

Founded in 1991, the mansion is now open to the public as a museum dedicated to the Greek War of Independence and the life of Greek heroine Laskarina Bouboulina, until recently, the first and only woman in world naval history to hold the title of Admiral.           

Pavlos Demertzis-Bouboulis was born in Greece in 1989. After growing up on the island of Spetses, he studied Business Management at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, graduating in 2010. A 6th generation descendant of revolutionary heroine Laskarina Bouboulina, he started work as a tour guide in the family-run Bouboulina Museum from a young age and, over the years, progressively moved on to Public Relations and Marketing. He has represented the museum at state and public events, national holidays, exhibitions as well as overseas.

After the passing of his father Philip, the founder of the museum, in 2018, he has taken on the role of President and, with the unstinting support and assistance of his family, continues to work toward the museum’s founding principle to restore and preserve Bouboulina’s mansion as the national monument it is today, whole at the same time guiding the museum firmly into the 21st century.
