Dubrovnik 27.01. through centuries

January 27, 2019

On January 27, 1416, Dubrovnik issued a decree on the abolition of slavery and the ban on slave transport. This is an exceptional act. For example, England did so in 1569, the US in 1865, and Brazil traded on people until 1888. 

 

 

 

 

On January 27, 1814, Generals Montrichard signed the French capitulation and handed Dubrovnik to the Allies under honorable conditions.  Before the fall of Napoleon, French geographer Montrichard, on 26 January, began negotiations on the surrender of the City. Without knowing this agreement and the success of the uprising, the inhabitants of the city walls were revolted. The mass of the gunman disarmed French guards, disrupted the cannons, and on the Orlandi pillar the banner of St. Blaise.

 

This was happening today, January 27, and 1814, while General Montrichard led the negotiations in Gruz. General Milutinovic and Montrichard agreed to surrender the City under honorary conditions. The French capitulation was signed, and on 27 January this year was ratified. After nearly eight years, the French forces dropped out of Dubrovnik on the 27th and 28th January 1814. The afternoon of January 28, Austrian and English troops entered the town, pulling the door from Pila, not allowing the simultaneous entry into the Dubrovnik uprisings.   

 

On today's day, on Monday, January 27, 1992, around 2:30 pm, a serious attack on Sustjepan was attempted. The attack was rejected and the defenders managed to destroy an enemy vehicle. This incident was the most serious since December 7 when a lawsuit was signed.
