A seal ascribed to Skanderbeg has been kept in Denmark since it was discovered in 1634. It was bought by the National Museum in 1839. The seal is made of brass, is 6 cm in length and weighs 280 g. The inscription (laterally reversed) is in Greek and reads
Several words are abbreviated, but an English translation might be: King. Alexander. By the grace of God. Emperor of the Romans. The Great. Ruler of the Turks. Albanians. Serbs. Bulgarians.
If this seal is authentic, it indicates that George Kastrioti declared himself king, using the name Skender in its Greek form. (Greek or Latin were the customary languages for royal inscriptions in the Middle Ages.) The titles highly exaggerate his actual power, but this was often the case for Medieval rulers. Skanderbeg is apparently seen as a successor of the Byzantine emperors, as shown by the title and the double-eagled crest, during this period a symbol of Byzantine power. The double headed eagle was first used by the Roman Emperor of Illyrian origin Constantine the Great.
The seal isnt authentic... Its a later creation. If he had done it, it would have angered the existing Byzantine inheritors who were still alive. And during most of his rule the Empire of Trebiznod was still alive, which was the legitimate heir to the Roman Empire.

Pyrros: false-Greeks hate Serbs. Serbs should only go to Bulgaria. The only serious Slavic land in south balkans who respects other Slavs.

Pyrros: The disease? ok... Anyways this is not the point. The point is Slavs need to get serious. Stop dealing with haters.
