In 1204, Ios was occupied from the Crusaders and came under the authority of the family Crispi of the Venetians until the pirate Barbarossa occupied the island. At that period, Ios suffered from a series of pirate invasions until it took part in the Greek War of Independence. Ios actively helped the revolution by donating twenty four well equipped ships. Ios became a part of the Greek State in 1829.
