Paros became part of the Duchy of Aegean settled by the Venetain Marco Snaudi from 1207 to 1389. During this period the Ekatontapiliani was rebuilt. In the following years the island was under Frankish or Turkish occupation. During the later one the Parians were lucky enouh to escape the worst effects of the Hydra-headed Ottoman taxation system, and even managed to get discounts on the tax they were forced to pay. The island suffered greatly from the Turkish-Venetian wars (1644-1669 and 1684-1699) as well as the attacks by pirates. During the 17th century, Naoussa was one of the largest pirate centers in the area. Paros was captured by the Russians during the Russo-Turkish was of 1770-7 and used as a naval base of their fleet in Aegean. After the 1821 revolution Paros became part of the new Greek state and has followed its mixed fortunes ever since.
