Georgios Karaiskakis (1782 - 1827).
 
A poor man who fled to the mountains (during the Ottoman occupation) where he discovered a talent as a military strategist & became 1 of the first heroes of the revolution.  During the siege of Acropolis, he commanded 2 victories at Arachova & Distomo.  He was killed in battle at Faliro.

Albanian Pandours
Napoleon's Albanian Troops
Ionian/Seven Islands Corps
ALBANIAN REGIMENT
The Regiment Albanais had its origins in a Venetian regiment transferred in to French service in 1797, together with an Albanian militia raised by the Russians in 1799,which passed to the French when they recovered the Ionian Islands in 1807.

On 12 October that year Napoleon approved the recruitment of about 3,000 Albanians, most of whom were refugees from the harsh rule of the local Ottoman governor of the Albanian coast, Ali-Pasha of Janiana.
