Domain of Epirus



During the decadence of the Byzantine Empire, in the area of unified Epirus, the “Domain of Epirus” was founded, stretching from Arta to Dyrhacchion. Since 1449, Epirus is occupied by the Turks. The Christian Epirots from the Northern regions resist under the leadership of the “Epirot Prince” Georgios Kastriotis (known as Skenderbey). The Albanians have him to be of Illyrian origin, despite his outright statement of the opposite, which is also inscribed on an Albanian stamp.
