I have removed the statement that Thesprotia prefecture was known as Chameria. It is my understanding that Chameria extends far beyond the borders of the prefecture. Moreover, Thesprotia is strictly a modern prefecture, while Chameria is a folk-ethnic region with vaguely defined boundaries. The two are not coterminous and never have been. Nor have they ever been synonymous. Athenean (talk) 06:18, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Regions have names whatsoever, and in this case the name of the region was Chameria until 1936, when it was renamed.Balkanian`s word (talk) 08:56, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
It was never the name of an administrative region. What do you mean it was 'renamed'? Kretsi doesn't speak about the prefecture. Also keep in mind that Konispol, part of Tsamouria today, is still part of Albania. The speacific part could be relevant with Chameria, but with Thesprotia prefecture this is completely irrelevant and misleading.Alexikoua (talk) 09:16, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Making the equation Thesprotia=Chameria is complete nonsense of course, as is "Regions have name whatsoever" (?). This article is not about a "region", it is about a well defined administrative subdivision. The only thing that needs to be mentioned is that it was created out of the Ioannina prefecture in 1936. It wasn't "renamed", it was created. Athenean (talk) 16:36, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Since no one responded, I have reinstated my edit. It is completely erroneous to equate the modern Prefecture of Thesprotia, the article's subject, with a far larger, and vaguely defined folk-historical region. It's like equating the Prefecture of Ioannina with Epirus (region) or the Prefecture of Thessaloniki with Macedonia. The prefecture is merely an administrative subdivision created in 1937 to shrink the oversize prefecture of Ioannina. That it lies in what used to be Chameria does not mean it is Chameria.

Moved from article[edit]

Thesprotians are not an "ancient greek tribe" but "ancient illyrian tribe. The name itself means nothing in greek language.Ness Unno (talk) 19:21, 22 February 2013 (UTC) (moved from the article by tetraedycal 19:25, 22 February 2013 (UTC))
