  1. It's marginal, but there is the Stalinist angle. Perhaps @Krej could weigh in on this since he's an expert on the Balkans? Perhaps there's a protochronist angle with ancient Illyrians? Bongolian (talk) 03:01, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
    Sadly, I am far from being an expert. There is indeed a connection between Romanian and Albanian nationalism in that there are (if I remember correctly) individuals in both camps who claim that the two groups are both descended from Dacians and therefore "brothers" (despite the fact that the pre-Roman Balkan languages are generally not sufficiently attested to determine which was the ancestor of Albanian). This is, however, only a vague recollection, and I could not, at this time, contribute any sourced mainspace material on the subject.--Кřěĵ (ṫåɬк) 10:13, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
    There was also a crank theory going round in the 1970s that Albanian was related to Etruscan. I think I have the book that puts forth the theory, but it's been years. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 13:17, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
    The Stalinism bit is probably covered in Enver Hoxha. Apart from some semi-fun stuff about King Zog, and not-fun stuff about the economy collapsing because of a pyramid scheme in the 90's, what is there? Nudescendant (talk) 18:47, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
