  Guardian | Hail Morea
In the words of his nephew, Angelo, Natale Morea is "an oddball: a homosexual and a transvestite".
He was born almost exactly 57 years ago in a village near Taranto, in the "heel" of Italy, and to be born a homosexual, let alone a transvestite, into a poor, socially conservative, southern Italian village, is to begin life already bearing a heavy cross.
Natale Morea opened a business of his own, an amusement arcade, but it did not thrive and, by some accounts, he ran up debts before fleeing his native village for a second time.

  Morea Lost to the Ottoman Turks   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
As the Turks reeled backward, Venice joined the fray, recovering the region of the Peloponnese (also known as Morea) that she had lost piecemeal to the Turks over the prior 150 years.
The Venetian advance was finally halted by the Turks at Negroponte in 1689.
Then, when even the recapture of Morea seemed possible, Venice's Austrian allies--who had been engaging the Turks to the north at Belgrade--decided to accept the Turks' peace overtures.

  Morea
The name Morea (Greek: Μωρέας or Μωριάς) was used to refer to the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece during the Middle Ages and the early modern period.
Morea, then, would be the land of the rebels, a good description of the peninsula for much of its history.
In the mid-14th century, the later Byzantine Emperor John VI Cantacuzenus reorganized Morea into the Despotate of Morea, usually ruled from Mistra by the current heirs of the emperor.
