The National Library of Greece (Greek: Εθνική Βιβλιοθήκη) was designed in 1888 by the Danish architect Theophil Freiherr von Hansen and its construction supervised by Ernst Ziller, as part of his famous Trilogy of neo-classical buildings, one of the major landmarks of Athens, including the Academy of Athens and the original building of the Athens University. The National Library of Greece was founded by Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first head of state of independent Greece (1827–33) and the founder of the modern Greek State.
