Kathimerini was founded by Georgios Vlachos in 1919 and was later inherited by his daughter Helen Vlachos (Eléni Vláchou) and her husband, retired submarine commander Constantine Loundras. Considered a high-quality broadsheet, Kathimerini is traditionally perceived as one of the mainconservative voices of Greek media. The newspaper was highly critical of Eleftherios Venizelos in the early 20th century, and also opposed the Papandreou family in the postwar years. It maintains a traditional layout, with its original griffin logo, and incorporates illustrated glossy inserts in its Sunday edition. Vlachos sold the company shortly before her death in October 1995 to Aristeidis Alafouzos, a real estate developer and shipping magnate, who died in 2017; he was succeeded by his son Themistoklis Alafouzos.
There is no data on Kathimerinis daily edition circulation, since the newspaper has prohibited press agencies to release such data. Its Sunday edition had a circulation of 95,007 in January 2014.
