Panagiotis Karatzas (Greek: Παναγιώτης Καρατζάς, 17th century – 1824) was a Greek revolutionary leader in Patras during the Greek Revolution of 1821. During his childhood years he showed his bravery and defiance against the Turkish and often fighting with Turkish peers. He fled for the Ionian Islands, which were then under English rule, and moved to Zakynthos and enrolled into the British Army in the 3rd Greek Legion. He returned to Patras in 1809.
