Aristeidis Moraitinis

Aristeidis Moraitinis (Greek: Αριστείδης Μωραïτίνης) (1806-1875) was born in Smyrna (now İzmir, Turkey). He was educated in France, but during the reign of King Otto, he was a staunch member of the Russian Party. He served as Prime Minister of Greece for a few days in February 1863 during the period between the coup d'etat against King Otto and the arrival of the new Danish-born Prince William who would be known in Greece as King George I. Moraitinis was made Prime Minister a second time for a little over a month in 1868. He died in Athens 1875.
