Navarchos Miaoulis (Greek: Ναύαρχος Μιαούλης, "Admiral Miaoulis") was a 1,820 ton Greek masted cruiser (in Greek termed Εύδρομο) named for the admiral Andreas Miaoulis, the leader of the Greek rebels' fleet during the Greek War of Independence (1821-1829).
Navarchos Miaoulis was built by Forges & Chantiers de La Med La Seyne in France, and she was purchased by Greece as part of their program of naval expansion after the unsuccessful Cretan uprising of 1866. She was soon rendered operationally obsolete with the acquisition of newer, faster and larger ships such as the battleship Spetsai and was made into a training ship. She served on active duty in this capacity until decommissioned in 1931.
