Spyros Stavros "Spiros" Niarchos (Greek: Σπύρος Νιάρχος; born 1955) is the second son of the Greek shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos and Eugenia Livanos. He is a grandson of another Greek shipping giant, his mother's father, Stavros G. Livanos.
In 1987, while skiing in Switzerland, he met 19-year-old Daphne Guinness (artist, socialite and an heiress of the Guinness family) and they soon married. The marriage ultimately ended in divorce, with Guinness receiving a GBP 20 million settlement in 1999.
The couple has three children:
- Nicolas Stavros Niarchos (born 1989)
- Alexis "Lex" Spyros Niarchos (born 1991)
- Ines Sophia Niarchos (born 1995)
In January 1999, Niarchos was a witness at the wedding of his best friend, Ernst August V, Prince of Hanover. He is the godfather of Crown Prince Pavlos' youngest son, Aristides-Stavros. With his brother, Philip, Niarchos is Co-President and Member of the Board of Directors at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
