[Future King] Zog ‘working out’ on the beach at Durres in 1925 (Kel Marubi)
In 1925, 13 years after Albania became an independent nation, Ahmet Muhtar Bej Zogolli (‘Zog’) became ruler of Albania (first as President, then as King). Zog married the half American/half Hungarian Geraldine Apponyi, the “White Rose of Hungary”, in April 1938. Mussolini’s son-in-law Count Ciano was present at the ceremony. It was during Zog’s ‘reign’ that the beautiful country of Albania became inextricably entangled with Fascist Italy.
