Count Augustinos Ioannis Maria Kapodistrias (Greek: Αυγουστίνος Ιωάννης Μαρία Καποδίστριας, 1778–1857) was a Greek soldier and politician. He was born in Corfu.[1] Kapodistrias was the younger brother of the first Governor of Greece Ioannis Kapodistrias and Viaros Kapodistrias (politician, lawyer and member of Filiki Eteria). After the latter's assassination on October 9, 1831, Augustinos succeeded his brother as head of the governing council, and at the office of governor. His six-month rule was marked by political instability and the country's slide to anarchy.
