Argos and Nauplia

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Argos and Nauplia was a medieval dominion in Morea .

The de la Roche family owned the Duchy of Athens until 1308 , which went to Walter von Brienne that year . Walter hired the Catalan Company , a group of mercenaries , but was overthrown by them in 1311 . His family remained in the possession of Argos and Nauplia , where his successors called themselves dukes.
