proud of our national hero
24 September 2006 | by (Albania) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that no Albanian made a comment about our hero...

Gjergj Kastrioti Skenderbeu (1405 - January 17 1468), better known as Skanderbeg, is the most prominent figure in the history of Albania. He is also known as the Dragon of Albania and is the national hero of the Albanians. He is remembered for his struggle against the Ottoman Empire, through the work of his first biographer, Marin Barleti.

The movie definitely needs a remake or something like this because it was shot in '53 and most of cast is Russian or Romanian or Belgian as far as i remember. (this is due to strong communist friendship with them) The movie quality is poor, sound also. (even though it has a magnificent score performed by the national radio television orchestra)

Biography

Gjergj Kastrioti Skenderbeu (1405 - January 17 1468), better known as Skanderbeg, is the most prominent figure in the history of Albania. He is also known as the Dragon of Albania[1] and is the national hero of Albanians. He is remembered for his struggle against the Ottoman Empire, through the work of his first biographer, Marin Barleti.

In English, his names have variously been spelled: George, Gjergj, Giorgio; Castriota, Kastrioti, Castrioti, Castriottis, Kastriotes, Castriot, Kastriot; Skanderbeg, Scanderbeg, Skenderbeg, Skanderbeu, or Scander-Begh.

His father was a lord of the Kastriotis family. Gjon Kastrioti[5], descended from an ancient family from Mat, and controlled a principality including Mat, Krujë, Mirditë and Dibër.[6]. Voisava, Skanderbeg's mother, was from the Tribalda family[5], a princess[7] from Polog valley[8]. Although he fought in the service of the Ottoman Empire, Skanderbeg soon switched sides and fought against the Ottoman Empire until the time of his death.
