I think the last military coup in 1967 was to prevent George Papandreou’s grandfather, also named George, from being in power. The colonels claimed to be saving Greece from communism. Possibly that was an exaggeration, but George Sr. was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Belgrade in 1965 when Belgrade was the capital of a Communist country.

It may be closer than you think. The Greek defense minister suddenly replaced the chiefs of the army, navy and air force today.
