However the French made themselves so unpopular that the Greeks welcomed a combined Russo-Ottoman fleet which took Corfu and set up the 'Septinsular Republic' in 1800, the first self-government, however limited, that the Greeks had experienced since the end of the Despotate of the Morea in the 1460s. The Republic was short-lived: the Russians handed the islands back to France in 1807 in the Treaty of Tilsit.
