Hariloas Tricoupis

Tricoupis, Hariloas, 1832–96, Greek statesman. He became Greece's foreign minister in 1866 at the age of 34. After brief periods as premier in 1875 and 1880, he became premier again in 1882 and began an ambitious program of road and railway construction and financial reform. A costly military build-up during his year out of office (1885–86) helped to destroy his financially optimistic development plans, and he resigned in 1895.
