Nikolaos Galatis (1792–1819) was a pre-revolutionary figure from a noble family in Ithaca, Greece and one of the founding members of the Filiki Etairia, the secret revolutionary society. He was assassinated by other members of the society for reasons that remain cloudy.[1] Some historians suggest that the other members of the society wants to distance him because he was positioning to take control of the organisation,[2] and in some sense he already had achieved that. Other historians suggest that the trigger for his assassination was his boastful character and the alleged use by him of society funds on his own folly, and others point to the alleged threat which he made (that he would turn the other members over to the Turkish authorities if they did not accept him as leader).[3] The typical account presents him as a danger to the organisation and as a traitor.[4][5]
