From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nikolaos Stratos (Greek: Νικόλαος Στράτος) (1872-1922) was a Prime Minister of Greece for a few days in May, 1922. He was later tried and executed for his role in the Catastrophe of 1922.


Early political career

Born in 1872 in Loutro, Aetolia-Acarnania, Stratos was first elected to Parliament in 1902. He was chosen as Interior Minister in 1909 under Kiriakoulis Mavromichalis after the Military League took power. In 1911, Stratos was elected President of the Parliament.

Prime minister

In 1922, Greece was in turmoil as the war in Asia Minor was ending in a massive defeat. When Prime Minister Dimitrios Gounaris almost lost a vote of confidence, he resigned on May 16, 1922 and King Constantine I asked Stratos to form a government. Stratos ultimately deferred to Petros Protopapadakis who successfully formed a government a few days later.

Trial and execution

Later in 1922, Stratos, along with Gounaris, Protopapadakis and others were charged, tried and convicted for the loss of the war in Asia Minor in what was known as the Trial of the Six. Stratos was executed at Goudi on November 15, 1922.
