Today is Republic Day in the European country of Albania.

It first declared its independence in 1912, becoming a principality, republic, and kingdom until being invaded, during World War II, by Fascist Italy in 1939, and invaded again by Nazi Germany in 1943. In 1944, a socialist People’s Republic was established under the leadership of Enver Hoxha and the Party of Labor. Finally, on January 11, 1991, the Socialist republic was dissolved and the Republic of Albania was established.
