Emperor Basil II recovered it (1014-18) for Byzantium, but after the temporary breakup (1204) of the Byzantine Empire during the Fourth Crusade, Macedonia was bitterly contested among the Latin Empire of Constantinople, the Bulgars under Ivan II, the despots of Epirus, and the emperors of Nicaea.

 @ ALBoZONE - Articles - "Northern Epirus" Between Propaganda and Myth
Northern Epirus is a mythic-geographical expression that, during this century, has acquired some pseudo-historical, and pseudo-cultural meaning, thanks to the efforts of fanatic political, religious and cultural groups and associations in Greece and in the Greek Diaspora.
"Northern Epirus" is the Greek name for those Albanian territories lying between the river Shkumbin and the country's Southern border, generally known as Toskëria in broader sense (i.e., including Labëria).
The Rilindja cultural patriotic movement in the South was related to Southern Albania being the cradle of Bektashism, a religious sect inspired by a philosophy which, thanks to its syncretism and eclecticism, and to its faith in enlightenment and tolerance, would serve as a catalyst to the cultural awakening of the entire region.
