Georgios Hatzianestis (Greek: Γεώργιος Χατζηανέστης, 1863 – 28 November 1922) was a Greek general. He was born in Athens. From May 1922 to the end of the war that September, he was Commander-in-Chief of the Greek armies during the last months of the Greco-Turkish War (known in Turkey as the Turkish War of Independence).
Following the Trial of the Six, Hatzianestis was executed for high treason along with five politicians in 1922 for Greece's defeat in that war.
