GEORGIOS KASTRIOTIS A GREEK KNOWN AS SKENDERBEU WHEN HE WAS ISLAMIZED BY SULTAN MURAT 2nd & GOT THIS TURKISH NAME THAT MEANS MEGAS ALEXANDROS.But when his parents died he defected the Ottoman army & returned to Greece he renamed to his original Greek christian, & married the Greek Androniki.He fought against the turkish army & won.
His grandfather was Constantinos Hegemon of Hemathia & Kastoria [from where he got his surname]
His father was Ioannis Hegemon of Kroya His mother was Serbian Voisava

His wife was the daughter of famous Greek Arianitos , Androniki Komnini [I bet again u dont know the meaning of her name] Giorgos Kastriotis never referred to himself as an Albanian but as a Greek Hepirotan in many letters. In those letters he signed as Γ Κασ τρι ωτη ς, never as gerg kastriot !! cutting greek names doesnt de-ellenize em
A NAME which u can find by thousands in Greece
He fought to free Epirus. If today was alive he would try to free the rest of Epirus occupied by albos

Kastriotis refers as an Heprirotan numerous times
Of course since ancient times no one ever denied the Greekness of Epirus.All kings were Greeks spoke Greek worshiped Greek gods & fought with the rest of Greeks under Macedonian command when MEGAS ALEXANDROS united all Greek States in order to take revenge from Persians that attacked Hellas

-The Turk Biographer of Ali Pascha, Ahmet Mufit, writes
"in the year 1443 The Greek Hegemon Giorgos Kastriotis escaped from the ottoman army of Morava and returned to his Homeland Kroia in Greek Hepirus"
-The Italian scholary A. Salvi reffers to him as "The Greko"
-The Engilsh researcher C. Randall reffers to him as "The Grecian Hero".
-The Swedish Barau and later also
-Rudbeck reffer to him as the Great Greek that was named by Sultan after Megas Alexandros the Greek, as a brave Greek

-The famous French historian Paganel in "Histoire de Scanderbey" reffers to him as Greek.
And the Danish military researcher Frantch De Zessen writes: "Giorgos Kastriotis is not Albanian because he was a son of Greek megistan Ioannis Castriotis and the Serb pincess Voisava"
Even an Albanian stamp of 1968 that was out due to the 500 years after his death and later withdrawn had written on it that he was an Hepirotan!«HISTORIA DE VITA ET GESTIS SCANDERBEGI EPIROTARUM PRINCIPIS».

Consequently, Danish Franz Nte Zesse'n, military correspondent of the newspaper "Le Temps" Paris, doubts the Albanian origin of Georgios Kastriotis, stressing in his lecture: "Question is, if Georgios Kastriotis is able to be considered Albanian, since he was the son of Greek Ioannis Kastriotis and of a Serbian princess ".
As much as I search , I cannot find a single reference at that time referring to him as an Albanian

Italian, English and Swedish reports consider Georgios Kastriotis a Greek. Thus Italian A. Salvi in the tragedy of (1718) he mentions him as a Greek (Greco Georgios Kastriotis). The English C. Randall in 1810 him calls Greek Hero (Grecian Hero) and the Swedish Barrau initially and Rudbeck later (1835) considers the Georgios Kastriotis a Greek.The History of French historical Paganel (Paganel: Histoire de Scanderbey), that was published in Paris in 1855 about him says he is evidently a Greek.

Marini Barletii, Kastrioti's first Biographer from Skodra (beginnings 16th AD),calls Kastrioti "Epirote prince" and "Sovereign of Epirus" while the entire biography reports only Epirotes & never Albanians.
Georgios Kastriotis' address to the sovereign of Taranta, Ioannis Antonio and giving out his origin and his genuine feelings, writes(in greek): "my forefathers were Epirotes from which Pyrrhus rose that only the Romans could push back.
SO TELL ME WASNT Pyrrhus GREEK ?? WERENT EPIROTES GREEK?

Georgios Kastriotis was adopted as a national hero of Albania even if he was a Greek ,coz Albos needed a symbol to build their new country. As the most recent habitats of the Balkans they had to present links to the past and underline struggles for these lands.Otherwise, Greece
& others would ask for these lands which were mainly Greek forever. Its not bad to have a foreigner as ur hero, Greeks have Lord Byron, But they dont remove his English nationality. Albos dont have any real heroes.

He had a few Albos & a lot of Greeks in his army. But the main body of Albos were on Ottomans side. Kastriotis killed these Albos. He himself said he was a Greek & had Greek progenitors like King Pyrros of Epirus. He wanted to imitate Megas Alexandros, his great ancestor, as he said. He defined as an Epirotan. His official sign was in Greek, never Albo. As a Greek I dont feel insulted that is ur hero What I dont like is that the majority of Albos either ignore his Greeknes or deny to accept it

This may sound strange BUT DUE TO THE ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF GREEK HEORES it is impossible to have all heroes statues everywhere so....
In Greece we have a tradition to place statues in the heroes homelands, so when we will free vorios Epirus we will place a new statue, for the time being we have named streets & squares in his grandfathers birthplace Kastoria as GIORGOS KASTRIOTIS STREET
LOOK UP ANY TELEPHONE CATALOG IN GREECE, u will find thousands of Kastriotis

Albanian propaganda included erecting many monuments in order to persuade the inernational community that he was Albanian
U may erect another thousand monuments but, THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE THE FACT THAT HE WAS GREEK
ALL MONUMENTS WERE MADE AFTER 1960
till then U DIDNT EVEN KNOW WHO HE WAS !
HE WAS A GREEK EPIROTAN
never Albanian
WE ALL KNOW Epirus WAS & still is a state of Greece
NOT A SINGLE EPIROT DENIED HIS GREEK NATIONALITY
Kastriotis was proud of his Greek progenitors as he himself said

Respect Georgios Kastriotis will to define as a Greek Epirotan descending from Greek king Pyrros and his admiration for his Greek progenitor MEGAS ALEXANDROS.
Greeks too have some foreign heroes such as Lord Byron, but they dont remove his british nationality. All honest Albo historians speak about a manipulated biography of him by the Albos. Albanians didnt even know his existence b4 1930. He was adopted as a national hero despite the fact that a lot of albo scholars rejected his heroization

In Greece
There is no official demand of Georgios Kastriotis' origin-In Greece we have thousands of heores, U can have him.
In gREEK books he is refered as an Albanian hero but his origin is refered as Greek
I really dont mind that GEORGIOS KASTRIOTIS is Albos National Hero, in fact I'm honored & proud as a Greek. But dont deny real facts.
People in Greece especially in Kastoria those who have the Κασ τρι ωτη ς surname claim descendants of Scendeber----> Their complain is that Greece isnt honoring him as much as Albanians. The only honor is naming streets & squares after him. The Greek government rejects any revaluating by placing statues coz of political reasons this would displeasure the Albanians therefore nothing is being done.
Greek pride dsnt decrease with 1 less hero, they say. There's no official demand for recognition of his Greek origin coz its self-evident for us Greeks

There is not a single document in which GEORGIOS KASTRIOTIS was referred as an Albo
he was always refered as A Greek Epirotan
ALL HIS FAMILY TREE CONSISTS OF GREEKS
ONLY ONE PERSON IN HIS FAMILY WAS A NON GREEK & WHAT IRONIC! EVEN THAT PERSON WASNT ALBANIAN! so u could at least say he was 50% Albo. But nope not even 50% HIS MOTHER WAS SERB
GEORGIOS KASTRIOTIS KILLED TURKALBOS & u dare to worship him? poor confused Albos
till 19th century u didnt even know who he was
NEVER B4 HE WAS ur HERO

Respect KASTRIOTIS WILL TO DEFINE AS EPIROTAN, A GREEK THAT IS
RESPECT HIS WILL TO CLAIM GREEK KINGS AS HIS PROGENITORS
RESPECT HIS ADMIRATION FOR HIS GREEK PROGENITORS
RESPECT HIS STRUGGLE AGAINST TURKALBOS
RESPECT THE FACT THAT HE KILLED ONLY TURKALBOS,
RESPECT HIS WILL TO WRITE IN HIS MOTHERLANGUAGE GREEK
RESPECT HIS STRUGGLES 4 FREE EPIROS, NOT ALBANIA
RESPECT THE FACT THAT HE DEFINED AS A GREEK, NEVER AS AN ALBO

WHY DID KASTRIOTIS STATE A GREEK EPIROTAN & A PROUD DESCENDANT OF GREEK KINGS PYRROS & Megas ALEXANDROS?
WHY FOUGHT FOR EPIROS & NOT Albania?
WHY FELT PRIDE FOR his GREEK PROGENITORS?
WHY DID HE RAISE A GREEK FLAG?
WHY DID HE WEAR A GREEK HELMET?
WHY SPOKE GREEK & HAD A GREEK NAME?
WHY DID HE SIGN AS Γεω ργι ος Κασ τρι ωτη ς?
Why DID HIS SON IOANNIS FIGHT TURKALBOS FOR THE FREEDOM OF GREEK PELOPONNISOS?

ONLY ONE PERSON IN HIS FAMILY WAS A NON GREEK & WHAT IRONIC! EVEN THAT PERSON WASNT ALBO not even 50%
HIS MOTHER WAS A SERB

GEORGIOS KASTRIOTIS KILLED FOKEN STINKY TURKALBOS
and u dare to worship him ? poor confused Albos
till 19th century u didnt even know who he was
NEVER B4 HE WAS A HERO TO THE ALBANIANS
WHO'S IDEA WAS IT TO ADOPT HIM AS AN ALBO NATIONAL HERO ? DO U KNOW ?
If they want to worship the Greek heroes that killed their grandfathers , no problem.
Shiterians, dont forget to worship our new heroes that will free Vorios Epiros

Georgios Kastriotis was definitely a Greek hero. Not only he wasnt Albo but he killed Turkalbanians
Just a few decades ago, Albos didnt even know who he was & adopted him as a hero, I dunno why
but very strange!
They r totally confused. They even think our revolution heroes which killed turks & Albanians, were Albanians!
If they want to worship the Greek heroes that killed their grandfathers , no problem.
Shiterians, dont forget to worship our new heroes that will free Vorios Epiros

Albos imposed Kastriotis as an Albanian, they even Albanized his name to Gerg Kastriot or something.
But the fact is that he wrote Greek & signed as Γεω ργι ος Κασ τρι ωτη ς He declared himself a descendant of the Greeks Megas Alexandros and his cousin Phyrus. Today its a paradox how Albos have managed to persuade the majority of people about his supposed Albo origin, which no Albos can prove. Of course the main reason for this is that the Greeks didnt verge on this issue enough

There was no Albania then, only Eprius
Georgios Kastriotis was fighting for Greek Epirus
Albanian Nation was first founded many years after his death. When he died his wife & son Ioannis Castriotis went to Italy. But after a while Ioannis returned to Mani in Pelloponisos to fight against the TurkALBOS. ALBOS WERE ON OTTOMANS SIDE
His motherland Greece needed him at that time in Peloponisos
IOANNIS CASTRIOTIS FOUGHT FOR GREECE,he fought against Turks & Albos, or u deny this too?

why not make a statue of Megas Alexandros and Pyrros ALSO ???

hahahahahaha
SO WHEN ALBOS WANT TO ALBANIZE SOMEONE ,,, THEY ERECT STAUES OF THEM !!!!

THE GREEKS FROM ASIA R STILL GREEKS COZ ANATOLIA WAS GREECE
they will return to Anatolia one day, when Greece will free it. These Greeks come from same Dorian tribe as Macedons. they r temporary habitats of modern Greece. ALL THEY DREAM OF IS THE LIBERATION OF THEIR OCCUPIED LANDS

Why r asian Greeks such an issue for mongrel scopianoids? WHAT WOULD U LIKE ? GREECE TO EXPEL THEM ?
WHY dafuk u speak about asian Greeks as being less Greeks ? Just coz today asia Minor is in the hands of turks

I dont understand why is the return of greeks that were kicked out of Greek Asia Minor back to the modern borders of Greece
IS A PROBLEM FOR scops . what is the meaning of this constant reference?
R scops TRYING TO COME EVEN COZ THEY R FROM mongolia? It is not the same. If Greeks were forced to leave their lands in turkey- they were about 2 million. OF COURSE THEY WOULD BE GLAD TO RETURN TO A FREE GREEK ASIA MINOR BACK TO THEIR HOMES
til then they will remain in Modern Greece

Hey turkoalbo slave from Caucasus....
Kastriotis was the Greek Byzantine Prince of Epirus!His biographer describes him as Epirotan and he not refer to Albanians when he speaks about him!
Kastriotis spoke and wrote greek....his letters to the Pope proves that while Pope and the western people called him proud descendant of ancient Greeks;)
This is the opinion of the historians and not of the church!
In Greece...only historians write history while in Albania history is written by artists like painter Durham who didn't study history but arts;)
Stupid nationalists also write history...your mythical national identity that universities reject 100%;)

Wow, Georgis Kastroitis renamed himself back to modern Greek.

What about the rest of the Greek population today that have Turkish surnames?

I guess that means that they really are of Turkish descent.

The Greek alphabet according to most accurate modern day measurments is dated millenias older than any Phoenecian existence IN THAT WAY THE WHOLE THEORY ABOUT the Phoenecian origin of Greek Alphabet is refuted.
The connection between the name of Cadmus and the historical origins of either the Linear B script or the later Phoenician alphabet, if any, remains elusive.

Born in Krujë Albania, Skanderbeg was a descendant of the Kastrioti family of Albanian origin.
According to Gibbon,[ Skanderbeg's father, was Gjon Kastrioti (John Castriot),lord of Middle Albania, that included Mat, Krujë, Mirditë and Dibër.
His mother Vojsava M. Barleti, from the old noble Muzaka family. Gjon Kastrioti was among those who opposed the early incursion of Ottoman Bayezid I, however his resistance was ineffectual.
He was distinguished as one of the best officers in several Ottoman campaigns both in Asia Minor and in Europe, and the Sultan appointed him General.
He even fought against Greeks, Serbs and Hungarians, and some sources says that he used to maintain secret links with Ragusa, Venice, Ladislaus V of Hungary, and Alfonso I of Naples.[8] Sultan Murat II gave him the title Vali which made him General Governor.
He was respected everywhere but he missed his country.
