Alexandros Korizis (1885-1941) was the Prime Minister of Greece briefly in 1941.

He assumed this role on January 29, 1941, when his predecessor, Ioannis Metaxas died. On April 6 of the same year, he personally rejected a German demand for the unconditional surrender of the country. Less than two weeks months later, on April 18, as German troops marched towards Athens and the city was placed under martial law, he committed suicide.
