Ο Κροκόδειλος (Κορκόδειλος-Κορκόντηλος-Ακροκόνδυλος) Κλαδάς (1425-1490) καταγόταν από τη Χιμάρα της Β. Ηπείρου και ήταν αλβανικής καταγωγής. Ο πατέρας του Θεόδωρος μετανάστευσε μαζί με άλλους Αλβανούς στην Πελοπόννησο όπου βρέθηκε στην υπηρεσία των Παλαιολόγων. Για τις υπηρεσίες του άλλωστε αυτές τού παραχωρήθηκαν εκτάσεις στην Μπαρδούνια της Μάνης όπου διατηρήθηκε το αρβανίτικο στοιχείο τουλάχιστον ως το 1821.


The Krokodeilos (Kordodilos-Korkontilos-Acrocondylos) of Kladas (1425-1490) originated from Chimara, Northern Epirus and was of Albanian descent. His father, Theodore, emigrated with other Albanians to the Peloponnese, where he was in the service of Palaiologos. For his services, he was given land in Barduuna of Mani, where the Arvanite element was preserved at least until 1821.

Christian Albanian village is named "Greek village", because of religion.

It is well known that practically all the Northern Epirotes use an Albanian patois as their mother tongue.

Regarding Kor -

1) Palairet, Michael (2016). Macedonia: A Voyage through History (Vol. 2, From the Fifteenth Century to the Present). Cambridge: Cambridge Scholars Publishing. pp. 114–115. ISBN 9781443888493.

"Of these, 14,000 were "Greek", the rest Albanian. "Greek" means that they adhered to the Orthodox Church, but they were probably predominantly Vlach, and enjoyed strong links with Romania... In the early 1880s, a rich Vlach emigre named Anastasios Avramidis-Liaktis announced his intention of making over his fortune for the benefit of people of Kor, and Albanians (presumably the Committee) approached him for funds to open an Albanian school there. The project caused inter-communal tension which led to the donor proposing instead a Greek school with Albanian teaching twice a week. Even this diluted scheme was dropped, as Avramidis-Liaktis learned to act "according to a purely Greek consciousness"."

2) Koukoudis, Asterios (2003). The Vlachs: Metropolis and Diaspora. Thessaloniki: Zitros Publications. ISBN 9789607760869. pp. 297-298.

"Regarding the origins of the urban Vlachs of Kor, Liakos notes that, according to a written source dating to 1867, apart from the Moschopolitans, there were also Vlachs from the village of Shals in Kolonj, which he describes as a former Arvanitovlach settlement. Aravandinos reports that the people from Shals and many from Moschopolis probably settled in Kor in an organised way, when the area was fairly calm after 1834. These settlers established the market district in Kor known as Varossi. If we bear in mind that the Arvanitovlachs who arrived in the Kor area in the early nineteenth century played a considerable part in establishing the Christian urban class in Kor, then we may, rather cautiously perhaps, suppose that one of the places from which they came was Shals."

George Tenet is a former director of CIA, he is a neo-Greek of Albanian-Chimariot origin.

Greeks = 'Vlachs'

1) In fact, the "Greeks" were partly Aromanians, for the meaning of the term "Greek merchant" in 16th century Transylvania is not national, but professional; it actually refers to an orthodox Balkan merchant.

2) The people of Moschopolis were Vlachs, one of the many ethnic and language groups found throughout Macedonia for centuries.

3) The prosperity of the Moschopolis Greeks was such that in 1720 they established a printing press under George Constantinides.

4) After 1760 the stream of Greek immigrants into Yugoslav lands reached the dimensions of a torrent. Waves of refugees came from Moschopolis shortly before it was plundered by Albanians in 1769. To give a more striking picture of the proportion of Greeks resident in Yugoslav lands, let me quote the following details given by Popović. In Krana (a frontier province of Croatia) most of the merchants came from Moschopolis, Grbova (near Moschopolis), Sfka, and Kozni.

FYI - I have exchanged a few messages with a couple of ancestrydna members who are listed as my "dna matches". Both of them are connected to Albania, and both are asserting (without me pressing in any way) that they are of mixed Greek and Albanian ancestry.

None of my known ancestors are of Albanian descent.


Regarding districts of Rogou and Koritza/Kor -

The History and Presence of the Vlachs in Albania:
http://vlahofonoi.blogspot.com/2011/...post_5321.html

Summary of relevant points/testimonies:

- Testimony of Victor Berard regarding the "Vlachs" in Elbasan, at the end of the 19th century: "The Vlach district of Elbasan ... marks a station on the large Vlach trade road from Pindus to Durres. These Vlachs have their own church, their own language and their own schools ... In both male and female schools, the teaching is in Greek ... Liturgy is in Greek... They themselves speak Vlachika in their district and Greek at the bazaar ... And they also send students to the University of Athens. They have Greek consciousness and say they are Greeks..."

- Professor of the University of Ioannina, Eleftheria Nikolaidou, in 1905: "The Vlach-speakers of Tirana are loyal to the Greek idea."

- The Albanian Vlachs are part of Greece, indivisible, indiscernible to such a degree that the French historian and journalist, war correspondent of the Parisian newspaper "Temps" during the Balkan wars, Rene Ruaux, crossing the Epirus from north to south states: "Indeed, I could not discern Greeks and Koutsovlachs."
