Count Augustinos Ioannis Maria Kapodistrias (Greek: Κόμης Αυγουστίνος Ιωάννης Μαρία Καποδίστριας, 1778–1857) was a Greek soldier and politician. He was born in Corfu.[1] Kapodistrias was the younger brother of Ioannis Kapodistrias, first Governor of Greece. After the latter's assassination on October 9, 1831, Augustinos succeeded his brother as head of the governing council, and at the office of Governor. His six-month rule was marked by political instability and the country's slide to anarchy.
