Hello Frederika!
For ages I've been trying to find out about a king of Montenegro who was assassinated. I think it's Danilo III. Could you tell me anything about him, please? :)

1444 Gejeji Skanderbeg
1914 William
1924 Zog I

Skanderbeg was the Albainian National Hero who founded  the first Albainian state Free from the Italians and Greeks
the Albainians are the last of the Illyerians who lived in the Balkans with the Greeks bethore the arival of the Slavs. After the fall of Konstantinopal Albainia fell under Ottamon  rule it was not untill 1914 did they regain independance again the major Europian Powers devised new borders leaving half the population out side in what is now Kosovo and gave the throne to Wihelm of Zu Wied (a german Princerpality) he was a relative of queen Elisaver of romainia. Wihelm gave up after six months and left the Country he was deposed in 1924. The same year Ahmet Zog 1895-1961 the son of a local albainian prince sized power and made him self presedent in 1928 he made him self king Zog I. Zog started to trasform his country from a medieval state in to a modern Monachy in 1938 zog Married a half American half Hungerian Countess Geralden 1915-2002 she was found seling post cards in a romainian Gallery Geraldien was a beautifful and accumplished young women. there was a problem Albainia was  under a protecterate of Italy in 1939 italy invaided King Victor Emmanuel was crowned king he was deposed in 1943 Aldainias mostly Musolem population were like al balkan people were vied as inferia saveges by the Nazi's and italians. Geraldine gave birth to her only child Leka in 1939 a few days later she and Zog fled over the greek border taking the royal jewels and most of the countrys gold with them they setaled in england in 1941 and then America were the Family and Zog's sisters who were niked named the ugly zoglits by most of europes monachys created a mock kingdom on long island. Zog finaly seteled in france were he spent the rest of his life dowing house work he died in 1961

Zog's son Leka was Crowned king in Paris which was atended by most of the Balkans ex royals the title was not as empty as it seemed as there were more Albainians living out side its boarders the regarded Leka as their king. Leka married in 1975 to an Austrailian Susan Babara Cullan Ward 1941-2004 they have one son Leka they went to live in south Africa were he owned an arms bussiness in 1990 Communism fel in Albainia it had been ruled with ruthless Maoisum and had alied itself with china the hole contrey was in ruins and to his day is the pourist in Europe. In1997 the royal family returned to Albainia for the first time a referendom was held in which 60% of the population voted not to restor the Monachy.

King Zogu was very unpopular amongst the Albanian population. They saw the monarchy as an expensive affair. The king gave his five sisters,nephews and other relatives money from the state-budget, while the people were very poor.
When the king left the country as mentioned, a box with gold fell  from the aircraft and hit an albanian minister in the head, and he died on the spot.

Bulgaria had 7 Khans, 632-852 and 14 Tsars, 852-1396 before the modern state. Hence the historic names of the last king's sons- Kardam, Kubrat, Konstantin Assen and Kyril [who actually was named after Boris IIIrd's uncle I think].

What can be said of the Russian-Balkan relations?
[I’m thinking mainly of the XIX century]

Is it correct to say that in the XIX century Russia saw as her duty the recapture of Constantinople from the Turks?
[you can imagine from this question I don't know much about Russian history, but that I'm eager to learn]

It's not just a Tzarist whim but a geopolitical direction. The Russians will always try to find a way to get hold of at least one port on a warm sea.

We are used to talk about the Balkans [in good or bad terms]. But what makes the Balkans "Balkanic"?
