Mmm Iíve heard this theory as well.

Marko isn't my strongest area, I believe he did belong to one of the families that ruled the former Serbian Empire. I've never heard the moniker 'Ruler of Serbs and Greeks', where did you read this? I'd say Marko appears in Macedonian folklore more often than Samoil, just going off 19th century recorded literature that has been provided in this forum.
My bad, that title was given to Stefan Dusan. Came across it here: The Late Medieval Balkans: A Critical Survey from the Late Twelfth Century to the Ottoman Conquest. Ann Arbor, Michigan: University of Michigan Press.

Got my wires crossed there.
