Benizelos Rouphos (Greek: ) (1795 - 1868) was a Greek politician and Prime Minister. Rouphos was born in Patras in 1795, a scion of the wealthy Rouphos-Kanakaris family. He was the son of Athanasios Kanakaris who fought during the Greek War of Independence. During the government of Ioannis Kapodistrias (1828 - 1830), Rouphos became governor of Elia. Later he would also serve as Foreign Minister. In 1855, Rouphos was elected Mayor of Patra, a post he held for three years. When King Otto was exiled in 1862, Rouphos became one of three viceroys - along with Konstantinos Kanaris and Dimitrios Voulgaris - that held power from October 10, 1862 until October 19, 1863. Rouphos served three times as Prime Minister of Greece. He died in 1868.
