In 1912, after the First Balkan War, with the help of Austria-Hungary & Italy, Albania gained independence. However, by the end of WWI, Albania was left almost in anarchy, until 1924 when, with the help of Yugoslavia, a tribal chief, Ahmed Zogu, became President. Communist forces seized control of the government in 1944, led by Enver Hoxha. In 1946, Albania became a socialist republic. [NS] {UA}
