This story from page 25 caught my eye. The “prince” referred to is Wilhelm of Wied, a German nobleman chosen by the Great Powers in 1914 as a compromise candidate to be “king” “of” Albania. (Like Maximilian of Mexico, as depicted in this cartoon.) His reign lasted six months. The story comes near the end of his reign, when his minister of the interior, Essad Pasha Toptani, is fomenting a Muslim rebellion against him (despite being funded by the Serbs, who are Orthodox and hated by the Albanian Muslims; are the Balkans always like this?):
By the end of the month, even the Prince could not fail to see the treachery surrounding him. Toptani was implicated in a Muslim uprising which threatened Durrës itself. When Toptani refused to accept dismissal, Wilhelm set up two field guns in his palace garden and bombarded the ministerial residence next door till a white sheet fluttered from the bedroom window.
