Nikolaos Triantafyllakos

Nikolaos Triantafyllakos

Nikolaos Triantafyllakos (Greek: Νικόλαος Τριανταφυλλάκος) (August 28, 1855, Tripoli - September 16, 1939) was a Prime Minister of Greece during a tumultuous time in Greek history in September 1922.

He represented the prefecture of Arcadia in the Hellenic Parliament. As the Greek army was losing battles and ceding territory to the Young Turks in 1922 in the war in Asia Minor, the political situation in Athens began to deteriorate.

The cabinet of Petros Protopapadakis resigned on September 8, Nikolaos Kalogeropoulos was entrusted by King Constantine with the formation of a new ministry. After two days spent in negotiations he failed in his task, and Nikolaos Triantafyllakos, the ex-high commissioner of Greece at Constantinople, was summoned, and succeeded with difficulty in forming a makeshift government.

In the meantime, excitement and dissatisfaction were steadily growing among the population, and strict measures were necessary for the maintenance of order. On September 26, martial law was proclaimed, following the revolt of 8,000 troops and their officers in Piraeus. The Cabinet and Prime Minister Triantafyllakos immediately resigned on September 29, and that day King Constantine abdicated for the second time in the course of his career, and the king's eldest son succeeded to the throne of Greece as King George II.

Triantafyllakos died in 1939.
