|Prince of Samos|
January 1908 – 22 March 1912
|Preceded by||Georgios Georgiadis|
|Succeeded by||Grigorios Vegleris|
|Died||22 March 1912|
Andreas Kopasis was the Ottoman-appointed Prince of Samos from 1908 to 1912. His tenure was widely regarded as pro-Turkish and tyrannical. His bringing in of additional Ottoman troops in 1908 caused a revolt to break out among the Samians, which was quelled brutally by further Ottoman reinforcements. The leaders of the pro-Greek opposition, including Themistoklis Sophoulis, fled the island for Greece. Kopasis was assassinated by a pro-Sophoulis agent on 22 March 1912.
