"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

Ethnic Country Map - How it should be

Here is a map I made centered on the Balkans and the northern Middle East. I have a rough map on how the countries of the Balkans and the Middle East should have been made after the collapse of the Ottoman and Russian Empires after WWI. What do you guys think?

The Albanian speaker communities in Greece were much larger after ww1, there were also some smaller Abanian speaker communities in South Serbia, Bosnia, Kroacia etc.
Other than that the map is very realistic.

Yeah, I was going for an overall fair map. The details are in fact much more complex as you have given an example of more communities.
