(Psara ~1790 - Athens 1877)
Kanaris was a greek fighter and politician and among the most courageous figures of the Greek War for Independence. After the declaration of the revolution, he abandoned his post at commercial ships and joined the fleet of Psara, specialising in pyrotechnics. During the night between June 6th and 7th he burned down the turkish flagship at Chios Island. Τhe British historian of the revolution, Thomas Gordon, reports that Kanaris’s act was one of the most important military achievements in recorded history.
On October 1822, in Tenedos, Kanaris received great admiration when he managed to destroy a Turkish frigate. Many more military missions would follow at Samos and Mytilini, with the climax being his fight against the Egyptian fleet at the port of Alexandria. After the revolution, Kapodistrias honoured his heroic contribution to the Greek War for Independence by appointing him chief of the firefighting fleet. After the assassination of governor Kapodistrias, Kanaris chose to retire to Siros until he returned to the public scene with the rank of admiral during the reign of Otto. After the revolution of September 3rd 1843, he was put in charge of the Ministry of Naval affairs and during three periods of crisis became prime minister of Greece. Kanaris died on September 2nd 1877, while he was serving as prime minister of Greece.
