Monument to Despina Achladiotou, The Lady of Ro, in the Horafia district, Kastellorizo, Greece at My Favourite Planet
Horafia district: monument to Despina Achladiotou, "The Lady of Ro" (1898 - 1982).
 
The Lady of Ro, by Kostas Valsamis, Kastellorizo, Greece at My Favourite Planet

The bronze bust of Lady of Ro,
by Kostas Valsamis, on Plateia Panagias in the Horafia district
of Kastellorizo.
Despina Achladiotou (Δέσποινα Αχλαδιώτου, 1898-1982), "The Lady of Ro" (η Κυρά της Ρω), is Kastellorizo's greatest heroine. She and her husband farmed and kept goats on the nearby island of Ro (Greek Ρω). She refused to leave the island even after the death of her husband and defiantly raised the Greek flag every day from 1927 to 1961, even throughout the Italian Fascist occupation of the Dodecanese. She is buried on Ro, which can be visited by one of the local cruise boats (see page 4: activities on Kastellorizo).

The bronze bust of the Lady of Ro, by Kostas Valsamis, is on Plateia Panagias in the Horafia district of Kastellorizo.
