Gregorios Kamonas[a] (fl. c. 1215) was a Greek-Albanian[1][2] Lord or Prince (archon) of Krujë[3] (Arbanon) in ca. 1215.[3] Demetrios Chomatenos (1216–1236) mentioned him as having the title of sebastos. He first married the daughter of Gjin Progoni, then married Serbian princess Komnena Nemanjić, the daughter of King Stefan Nemanjić and widow of Dimitri Progoni, thus inheriting the rule of Arbanon. He strengthened ties with Serbia and secured Arbanon through an Orthodox alliance.[2] He had a daughter together with Komnena, who married Golem of Kruja the later lord of Kruje.[3]
