An excerpt from the article 25 facts about Albania

In ancient times, the areas of today's Albania were inhabited by Illyrian, Thracian, and Greek tribes. In the 3rd century BC, these areas were annexed by Rome and became part of the Roman provinces of Dalmatia, Macedonia, and Moesia.

These territories remained under Roman and Byzantine control until the migration of the Slavs in the 7th century and were integrated into the Bulgarian Empire in the 9th century.
