Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg (6 May 1405 – 4 December 1466) (Albanian: Gjergj Kastriot Skënderbeu, widely known as Skanderbeg, Turkish İskender Bey, meaning "Lord or Leader Alexander"), or Iskander Beg, is one of the most prominent historical figures in the history of Albania and of the Albanian people. Scanderbeg's bones measured him to be at least up to 7 feet tall, with that hight, he could easily still swing his extremely heavy sword knowingly. He is also known as the Dragon of Albania and is the national hero of the Albanians. Through the work of his first biographer, Marin Barleti, he is remembered for his struggle against the Ottoman Empire, whose armies he successfully ousted from his native land for two decades.  Skanderbeg's father, was Gjon Kastrioti (John Castriot), lord of Middle Albania, that included Mat, Krujë, Mirditë and Dibër. His mother was Vojsava from the Tribalda family, (who came from the Pollog valley, north-western part of present-day Republic of Macedonia), or from the old noble Muzaka family,An Albanian Princess.. Gjon Kastrioti was among those who opposed the early incursion of Ottoman Bayezid I, however his resistance was ineffectual. The Sultan, having accepted his submissions, obliged him to pay tribute and to ensure the fidelity of local rulers, George Kastrioti and his three brothers were taken by the Sultan to his court as hostages. After his conversion to Islam, he attended military school in Edirne and led many battles for the Ottoman Empire to victory. For his military victories, he received the title Arnavutlu İskender Bey, (Albanian: Skënderbe shqiptari, English: Lord Alexander, the Albanian) comparing Kastrioti's military brilliance to that of Alexander the Great.
These are one of the royal guards of the kingdom of Doreador. These guards have been highly trained and with their heavy armors, spears, swords and incredible strengh and magical abilities they can turn up to be a big challange against anyone who dares to attack the royal family or any crime, especially in big numbers. So it is better to not mess with these guys.
What these guards are possibly guarding anyway? Perhaps the throne room? Maybe we are soon going to see the king and the queen of Doreador as well?
And by the way, I think these two used to be adventurers like you, but then got arrows in the knee. XD (Can you guess what I'm refering to?)
It was about time I finally drew and show what the guards of Doreador look like. As you can see, they wear red capes just like the princess of Doreador, Anima, wears too [link] I decided that all or at least most of the soldiers and knights of Doreador would wear these red capes.
Unlike usually, this picture was drawn with a drawing table and I'm still not that good with doing digital art. Comments are really appreciated.
