CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017 M01 23 - 130 pages
Since the time of Leke Dukagjini in the 15th c. contemporary of Albania's hero Gjergji Skanderbeg, the name Gjomarku has been synonymous with valor, pride and honor. Through the centuries this family has sought to keep Northern Albania united in their beliefs, traditions and most of all their Catholic religion. During those tumultuous times under the Ottoman Empire's rule, the Gjomarku Kapidans bravely and courageously led their people through a number of wars, followed by periods of peace and then war again. The losses were many. The triumphs even more. Ultimately, the years passed and the ravages of those wars, conflicts and final takeover by the Soviet backed Albanian communist regime, took its toll on the House of Gjomarku. In this book written by Ndue Gjon Marku, one of the last Kapidans of the House, you will understand the battles fought and turmoils endured, both physical and emotional. This book is not voluminous but the content is informative, on-point and instrumental in understanding the legacy the House of Gjomarku has passed on to future generations, near and far.
