This Altksama language dating back only to the period after the emergence of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus in the north and drove the Greeks from the north to the south, before the Greek language is the most prevalent.

In the fifties of the twentieth century AD, the Greek Cypriots under the leadership of Archbishop Makarios political campaign for union with Greece, and formed a secret organization knownsimply as EOKA, launched a fierce guerrilla war against the British. Britain announced a state of emergency on the island in 1955. In 1956, Britain denied Makarios to the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean.
