(Kerkira 1776 – Nafplio 1831)
Count Ioannis Kapodistrias was a greek diplomat and politician. In 1821, after the commencement of the Greek revolution, he resigned from his position as minister of External Affairs due to his disagreement with Tsar Alexander of Russia who firmly stood against any rebellions in Europe. In 1822, following his resignation he moved to Geneva in Switzerland, where he remained until 1827, aiding in many way the rebelled nation and becoming a highly regarded contributor to the creation of the Swiss federation.
In 1827, he was elected the first governor of the Independent Greek Nation. During the transitional period while Greece was under the protection of the Grand Forces he contributed with his personal fortune for the development of the newly funded Greek state.

On the morning of the 27th of September of 1831, Ioannis Kopodistrias was assassinated by the Mavromichali brothers outside of the church of Saint Spyridon in Nafplion.
