Georgios Georgiadis was the Ottoman-appointed Prince of Samos who reigned briefly from 1907 to 1908.

Biography[edit]

Georgiadis was born in 1866 to a Greek family who were natives of Prokopi, near Niğde in Cappadocia (modern Ürgüp, central Turkey).[1] After being appointed Prince, he came to the island, but he realized that a civil war was about to break out. To avoid fighting his own people, he gave his resignation to the Ottoman Sultan. When he left, he told the Samian Parliament : "Fellow Samians, I am leaving because I don't want to execute the illegal orders of the Ottoman government. I hope that I will not be replaced by Andreas Kopasis". However, that is exactly what happened.
