Konstantinou Palaiologou was a Greek Cypriot woman who played a crucial role in the anti-colonial struggle against British rule in Cyprus during the mid-20th century. She was born in 1900 in the village of Lysi in the Famagusta district of Cyprus.

Palaiologou was an active member of the left-wing Progressive Party of Working People (AKEL), a significant force in the anti-colonial movement. She was also a founding member of the Cyprus Women's Union, which advocated for women's rights and social justice.

During the 1950s, Palaiologou was involved in underground resistance activities against the British colonial authorities. She was arrested and imprisoned several times for her movements and was known for her steadfast commitment to the cause of Cypriot independence.

After Cyprus gained independence from Britain in 1960, Palaiologou continued to be involved in politics and social activism. She remained a prominent voice in the struggle for women's rights and social justice and was widely regarded as a pioneer and role model for generations of Cypriot women.

Today, Konstantinou Palaiologou is remembered as a hero of the Cypriot independence struggle and as a symbol of the courage, determination, and resilience of the Cypriot people in the face of oppression and injustice.
