Klephts, meaning “thief” or just “brigand” in Greek, were highwaymen that became self-appointed armatoloi, anti-Ottoman insurgents, and warlike mountain-folk who lived in the countryside when Greece was a part of the Ottoman Empire. They were the descendants of Greeks who had retreated into the mountains during the 1400s to avoid Ottoman occupation and oppression. They carried on a continuous war against Ottoman rule and remained active as brigands until the 1800s, when Greece rebelled against Ottoman rule.
