In 1249 Mystras became the capitol of Principality of Achaea, established in 1205.  Prince William II Villehardouin built a palace there in 1249.  In 1261, it was ceded as ransom by William II.  Michael VIII Palaeologus made the city the seat of the new Despotate of the Morea.  Mystras and the rest of Morea became relatively prosperous after 1261.  Under the despot Theodore it became the second most important city in the empire after Constantinople.  The last Byzantine emperor, Constantine XI, was despot at Mystras before he came to the throne.  Demetrius Palaeologus surrendered the city to the Ottoman emperor Mehmed II in 1460.  Except for Venetian occupation from 1687 to 1715 the Ottomans held it until 1821 . The last inhabitants were relocated in 1950.
