Epameinontas Deligeorgis (1829-1879).

Epameinondas Deligeorgis (Greek: Επαμεινώνδας Δεληγεώργης; January 10, 1829, Tripoli, Arcadia – May 14, 1879, Athens)[1] was a Greek lawyer, newspaper reporter and politician. His father hailed from Mesolonghi. Deligeorgis studied law at the University of Athens and entered politics in 1854. He was not a proponent of the Megali Idea (Great Idea) and thought that a better solution to the Eastern Question would be to improve the condition of the Greeks living in Ottoman-controlled Macedonia, Epirus, Thrace and Asia Minor by liberalising the Ottoman Empire. Deligeorgis was the person who, on October 10, 1862, declared the end of the reign of King Otto and the convening of a national assembly.
