(1866 – 1963)

Nicolaos D. Lykiardopulo was born in 1866 on Cephalonia in the Ionian Sea, into a family that already had a pedigree in seafaring and shipping dating to the 18th century.

Lykiardopulo played a key role in shipping activities in both London and Piraeus, as well as in the wider Greek economy, and established the foundation for the family to continue its journey in the industry to the present day.

After elementary schooling on his island of origin, Lykiardopulo went to Istanbul at the age of 13. He embarked on his first ships as a cabin boy and later followed an uncle, Captain Photis Lykiardopulo, as a master in the fleet of the influential merchant and shipowner Panagis Vaglianos.
