Theodoro, not Trebizond, was last Roman Stronghold

Principality of Theodoro

Found another byzantine desponate, up in Ukraine. It was a Greek dynasty, Trebizond clearly recognized it, got its royal princess for its "emperor".

 

Lasted till 1475 at least, still can't date the survival of the mountain island cities that held out against both the Turks and Italians.

 

So.... yeah. Wasn't expecting that, was another independent town hidden behind a Geneoese/Venetian Buffer holding just the shore.

 

Turks didn't appear to happy once they finally reached them, dragged the ruler down to Constantinople and executed him.
