Xhemal Zogu Pasha

Positions Held

Hereditary governor of Mati


In 1903, he joined other Albanian nationalists in plans for an insurrection against the Ottomans. They had sought support from Greece, but Greece betrayed them by informing the Ottomans of the plans. The Ottomans took action against the perpetuators and the organisation was disbanded. Xhemal Pasha was invited to Istanbul by the Sultan, but he declined. He later died suddenly, not without the suspicion of having been poisoned. He may have died in 1911 instead, or in 1904.
