Zog of Albania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1697 words)
Ahmed Zogu was born in Castle Burgajet, Albania, to Xhemal Pasha Zogu and his wife, Sadijé Toptani.
He became leader of a major reformist party, and his political supporters included southern feudal landowners (called beys, Turkish for "village chieftain") and noble families in the north, along with merchants, industrialists, and intellectuals.
Zog had been engaged to the daughter of Shefqet Bey Verlaci before he became king; soon after his coronation, however, he broke off the engagement.
