Scanderbeg's long guerilla war against the Turks and Islam won him innumerable victories and eventually the independence of Albania. Upon his death in 1468, Albanian resistance to the Turks collapsed and the country soon relapsed into the Ottoman Empire

  • Printing date unknown, but possibly 1508, as Vitali had printed two works in Rome as early as 1507 and 1508; Norton suggests that, in light of a change of type after 1508, the Historia may have been printed after 1515 or even as late as 1522 when Vitali had returned to Rome for his final sojourn
