Stavroulis Niotis (1795-1868?): Born in Anogia in Mylopotamos, where he was active with Vassilis Sbokos before the Revolution. In 1825-1827 he was active in the area around Mt Psiloritis. He took part in the operations in the Merambello area in the autumn of 1827 and in the battles around Frangokastello the following spring.

The Orthodox Christian Cretans took part in the Greek Revolution, but the island was not integrated into the Greek state established in 1830. Crete remained a possession of the Ottoman Empire, with repeated uprisings by the Greek inhabitants, until 1898, when it gained its autonomy (Cretan State), before eventually being incorporated into the Kingdom of Greece in 1913.
