A few days after our arrival in this village , Spiro Milio presented himself to Mavrocordato,with a corps of two hundred picked Chimariots,the most martial-looking men in the whole army.They are not to be distinguished from Albanians,their dress and language being perfectly similar;but though their religion is Greek,they do not understand one syllable of Greek.

J.Millingen (Memoirs of the affairs of Greece,London,1831,page.208-209)

I assure you they are Bismarcks — veritable Bismarcks. Some day they will demand, and Europe will have to give them what they ask !

A Christian Ottoman official speaking to Edith Durham about Albanians
.... Anon from the castle walls

The crescent banner falls,

And the crowd beholds instead,

Like a portent in the sky,

Iskander's banner fly,

The Black Eagle with double head.

And shouts ascend on high

.....'' Long live Scanderbeg.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
