forget about Albanian (Shiftar) propaganda. Albanians are Semitics and they were last who arrived on Balkan. They came and strenghten with Turkish invasion. Now, Albanian scholars under Italian influence spread lies how Iliryans were Albanians. Absolute nonsense that serve to idea of Greater Albania
Under Leopold I (1636-1705) the Serbs or Raizi, who had been established on Hungarian territory since 1690, were designated as the Illyrian nation; to provide for their protection against Magyar incursions a special office was created at the Court of Vienna, known as the Illyrian Court Deputation, which was abolished in 1777, and in 1791 enjoyed a brief revival as the "Illyrian Imperial Chancery."
