Theothori (Ri-Ri) Tzortzopoulos, one of a number of children born to George Dimitri Tzortzopoulos, and Olympia (nee, Tzortzopoulos) in Karavas, Kythera.

In birth order, these children were, Katina, Marouli, Dimitri, Minas, Haralambos, Theothoros, Panayotis, and Costas.

5 of the children left the island, and/or Greece, emigrating to Australia, Theothori, along with Marouli, and Haralambos, remained.

He married the "famous" Mummi - midwife - Maria Krithari - and lived in the Tzortzopoulo patriko spiti - at the base of the steps leading up to the marmaro, and Church of Ayios Haralambos, in Karavas.

Behind him is the Patriko skolio, [the Agricultural School, named after its original patron, (see other entries at kythera-family)] which as of 1968, was obviously in very fine condition.

He is inspecting olives on a very thriving olive tree at the front of the skolio.
