The Phanariots, very interesting group of Greek-speaking mixed bag of lollies that served their Islamic masters well while they milked the Christian provinces. I have said it before, Greek-speakers of whatever ilk or origin, as the "administrative class" above the rest of their own kin, were the greatest friends to the Turks for the duration of Ottoman rule in the Balkans.
