Link Updates

The old and now defunct link on Metaxas has been replaced with a new version. Also the extensive Hellenic Genocide site, designed by philhellene Roberto Lopes of Brazil, is currently being updated and is multilingual, the link is provided on this blog underneath the original. Two new and promising blogs, Hellenic Empire blog and Great Hellas blog, that share Hellenic Nationalist sentiments have recently been linked to on this blog. I encourage visitors and fans to use the links.

Some websites that have been off the web for some time now have been removed, with the exception of Hellenic Nationalist Perspective, one of the finest Hellenic Nationalist sites on the web, we all await its return and it will remain on the link section of this blog in expectation of its return.

Great post athelfe. I have also checked the Great Hellas blog, but I have not yet come into contact with the Greek who owns it.

Keep up the good work.

P.S. Visit my blog. I have a new article that is interesting to read.

Hey athelfe. Do you know where I can find sources pertaining to the Arvanites?

The Arvanites were Greeks, but I was wondering if such a statement is actually supported by any books or journals today.

Of course, there is Kollias' book about the Arvanites. Do you know any other sources pertaining to the Arvanites? I have already done a Google search and did not find much.

Could you help me athelfe? If you could, then great. If not, then that is okay.

Thank you for your appreciation and visits. If you notice I put two commentaires under your post on the eXile article in your blog, although for some reason ,it only shows two comments on your homepage.

The only other source I know pertaining to the ethnic origins of Avranito-Valchs is cited below:

"After 1318, the peaceful Albanian infiltration came to an abrupt halt. A leaderless horde of twelve thousand people, comprising the three tribes of the Malakasioi, Bouioi, and Mesaritai, descended upon Thessaly and ravaged the countryside. Greek and Catalan authorities in this area were forced to withdraw to the immediate vicinity of castle strongholds. Some of these raiders spoke Albanian, other Arvanito-Vlach, which would seem to suggest that they came from southern Albania. Indeed, the survival of certain oral traditions concerning the origin of the Albanians reinforces such a conclusion. In particular, the Arvanito-Vlachs of Acarnania, or Karagounides ( which is the name applied today even to the Greek-speaking inhabitants of the plain of Thessaly ), believed that their ancestors left the area of Avlona ( Valona ) some four or five hundred years before. Thence they has dispersed throughout the district of Metsovon, in Epirus along the Aspropotamos River ( Achelous ), and in Kalarites.Whether or not this is so, is is definitely known that the Albanians who plundered Thessaly were eventually pacified by the Byzantine emperor Andronicus III, to whom they swore allegiance in 1333."

Isn't southern Albania technically Greek and a part of Epirus?

Also, was Apostolos Vacalopoulos even aware of the fact that the Byzantine Empire was very sensitive pertaining to demographics? Also, the Arvanites were ethnic Greeks who were transported from Epirus to Greece by Emperor Katacouzenos in the 14th century.

I know there are sources that state the Arvanites were Greeks. However, there is unfortunately too much Albanian propaganda existent on the Internet pertaining to such a topic.

Anyway, thanks for the help. Hey, maybe you could write a post about the Arvanites and see where that takes you. Or I could do it. Regardless, it seems that Greek history is being changed to suit the needs and interests of Greece's neighbors rather than the interests of historical accuracy.

Thank you for your help athelfe. Keep up the good work. Later.

Just so you know adelphe, I not only created a new e-mail account on Yahoo, but I also e-mailed the people at eXile about issue #212.

Go to my blog and see the comments I posted. Also, I have written a new article.

Later, adelphe.
