Line of succession to the Albanian throne

Line of succession to the Albanian throne

The Albanian monarchy was overthrown in 1939 when King Zog fled the country following an invasion by Mussolini's Italy. The pretender and head of the House of Zogu since the death of King Zog in 1961 is Zog's son Leka, Crown Prince of Albania, Leka has one son:

# Prince Leka of Albania (b. 1982)

Following this the line of succession is unclear, however, if Prince Leka II dies without issue it is expected he shall appoint a cousin of his father's to become head of the House of Zogu and, therefore, claimant to the Throne.
