Gramvousa soon became notorious across Europe and people started to refer to Gramvousa as the Island of Pirates. This made European forces to react and with the approval of the Greek government and the administration of Kapodistrias, English and French ships attacked Gramvousa on 19 January of 1828 and destroyed the pirates ships while many of the pirates were captured.
