The Lordship of Berat (1335–1417) was a county created by despot Andrea II Muzaka of the Muzaka noble family in 1335, with its capital at Berat. The lordship was united with other Albanian Principalities in the League of Lezhë in 1444.
A chronicle by Gjon Muzaka (John Musachi), written in 1515 after he abandoned Albania and went to Italy, records many interesting facts about the Muzakaj family and the Principality of Berat, although at places unreliable. The text is considered to be one of the oldest written by an Albanian.
