High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Vordonia (Greek: ) is a
small village in the base of Taygetos mountain, in Laconia, Greece.
The village is divided into three communities (Campos, Kato Hora
and Pano Hora) and is part of the municipality of Pellana. Most of
the population left the village after the WWII war and moved to
Athens, many migrated to other countries, primarily the USA and
Australia. The origin of the name Vordonia is believed to be
Villehardouin, a Frankish lord who became master of the Morea after
the 4th Crusade sacked Constantinople and divided up the Byzantine
Empire. Villehardouin located his capital at the town of Mystra
some 10km SW of Vordonia. The Crusader Castle located above the
village lends credibility to this view. The American crime fiction
author George Pelecanos traces his origins to his eponymous
grandfather who migrated from Vordonia to Washington DC in the
