Pavlos Demertzis-Bouboulis, Director of the Bouboulina Museum, presents the life and actions of his famous ancestor, naval commander Laskarina Bouboulina, and takes us on an exclusive walk through her 350-year-old home. Founded in 1991, the former residence is now a museum and cultural centre on Spetses and specializes in the Greek War of Independence and the life of revolutionary 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 1989 in Greece. After growing up on the island of Spetses, he studied Business at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, graduating in 2010. A sixth generation descendant of Greek 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 Director and with the unstinting support and assistance of his family continues to work towards the museum’s founding principle to restore and preserve Bouboulina’s mansion as the national monument it is today, while at the same time guiding the museum firmly into the 21st century.
