1. Facts from the history of Shkodra Region

The city of Shkodra was founded in the fourth century BC by the Illyrian tribe Labeats. At the time when the Illyrian population of Albanian territory reached high economic and cultural development, in the year 181 BC it became the capital of the Illyrian Kingdom. With the division of the Roman Empire, Shkodra, passes under Byzantine control but continues to depend on the Church of Rome, since it was an important religious center. Facing many barbarian invasions, in the eleventh and fourteenth century, Shkodra experienced a brief period of self-government. In the second half of the fourteenth century it was the capital of the feudal state Balshichs, before moving to Venice dependence in the fifteenth century. At this time the castle went under a reconstruction (since it began to be built in the fifth and fourth century) and the city took its name Scutari. In the IV century in the territories that previously constituted Pulti principality, smaller ethnographic divisions were formed. These social economic communities concentrated even further to form what today is known as Malësi e Madhe (Great Highland, from the organization in the mountains).
