In the official newspaper of the Vatican in Rome, L’Osservatore Romano*, Giovanni Armillotta published an article titled “Pope Clement XI and the Albani Family” in which he stated that the prominent Albani family in Italy was founded by two Albanian brothers, George and Filip of Michele dei Lazi, who fought the Turks alongside the 15th century Albanian folkhero, Gjergj Kastrioti, known in Europe as Scanderbeg (1405-1468). As a military leader of outstanding capabilities, Scanderbeg united hitherto warring Albanian clans into a common army to battle the invading Turks thus preventing the Ottoman Empire from extending into Europe.
The Albani brothers took the name “Albanesi” that George’s son, Altobello (1454-1564) had changed to “Albani”. In addition to Pope Clement XI (1700-1721), Armilotta states that the Albani family produced other illustrious personages who became cardinals, diplomats, and important statesmen including Giovanni Girolamo (1509-91) cardinal, Orazio (1576-1653) statesman, Anibale (1682-1751) cardinal, Alessandro (1692-1779) cardinal, and Guiseppe (1750-1834) cardinal.
Armallota concludes his article in L’Osservatore Romano by stating that “even before Clement XI (1700-1721), we find there were three other Pontiffs of Albanian origin: Saint Eleutherius (175-189), Saint Caius (283-296), and Pope John IV (640-742)”.
Skanderbeg is Albanians national hero, he was prince of Kruja, taken hostage since age 9 years old by Ottoman sultan who would train and honor him with high rank names like Iskander on honor of The Great Alexander of Macedonia and would gave him title Bey.
Starting in year 1444 when Skanderbeg would desert Ottomans and start war would become most important shield of Christianity. Mostly the siege of Shkodra's castle from where would be in game fate of Italy and together with it fate of Benedict.
