According to Greek mythology, Evia was inhabited firstly by the Titans and later by the Giants. Master Giant Vriareos was worshiped in Chalkida and in Karystos. Residents were suffering by the dynasty of Giants and kept on worshipping the Titans.


In 1470 Evia was conquered by the Turks. In 1821 the Turks prevented the liberation of the island. On 7th April of 1833, Chalkida was liberated from the Turkish bondage and incorporated into the Greek state.
