His role in Albanian history is important since he is the son of George Kastrioti Skanderbeg, the most significant character in Albanian history. There were plans for him to liberate Albania and become its king, all supported by the pope.--Gaius Claudius Nero (talk) 21:38, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes, an AfD may be started, but there will be a keep. Notability inherited because of the 1481 uprising led by him. --Sulmues (talk) 21:51, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Descendants of the Palaiologi[edit]

Current article reads: "The Castriota Scanderbeg living in Italy today represent the only descendants of Manuel II Palaiologos.[2]"

Even if Runciman is correctly cited, this is impossible. French Wikipedia gives at least two other branches of the Palaiologi; one married someone who inherited a county in Northern Italy, and one married into the Russian royal family and was the grandmother of Ivan the Terrible. Plus, in 500 years, the Castriota Scanderbeg in Italy will have had some daughters who married into other families and had children and descendants. The French Ambassador to St Petersburg in 1914, Michel Paleologue, also claimed descent.

I propose to alter to "The Castriota Scanderbeg living in Italy today are therefore descendants of Manuel II Palaiologos" — Preceding unsigned comment added by Markd999 (talkcontribs) 11:47, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
