This article discusses the Greek newspaper "Trakatrouka", the publication of which started in 1848, and its extreme royalist position which it maintained throughout its publication. On the pretext of satire, it launched a huge slanderous campaign against the Constitution as well as against certain politicians and journalists of the time. Instead the newspaper supported by all means the king himself, whom it portrayed as a holy person, together with all those who permanently or occasionally were on his side. While searching for the true reasons behind the newspaper's hostile attitude towards certain individuals, this article identifies the effort made by the monarchy to preserve in any way possible the unlimited royal power.
