unfortunately we do not have either the same ancestor (at least not all of us) or the same roots. Thus, my ancestor have many cousins than could probably spread the name , so we all may have a family band. But all that are written now are for sure true for my family and my relatives from Krannona(feminine) in Thessaly.

In 1204 the west Crusaders conquested Constantinople then Constantinus Kourtys became colaborator with the Britaan and as a reward they gave him the title of Duke(I have the letter where they give him the title) and also offered him a part of Constantinople to rule. When the brother of the last byzantine emperor conquest again the city he left with his family to Rome where he lived as a philosopher and intelectual liver. he live to the end beside luxuries as he was used to.
