Overview
Story of Scanderbeg in a nutshell. In the 1400s, the heroic Scanderbeg must defend Albania and Europe against the Ottoman Empire and his arch nemeses, Murad II and his son, Mehmed. Scanderbeg, after having been forced into service for Mehmed I and Murad II in Turkey, returns home to Albania. He tricks the Turkish soldiers stationed at the White Castle into leaving, and regains his rightful place on the throne. When Murad II hears this, he makes it his life's work to overthrow Scanderbeg and return Albania to being a territory in the Ottoman Empire, and use it to attack Rome and Western Europe. Murad II is never successful and his son, Mehmed makes it his mission as well. Many battles ensue, and Scanderbeg is betrayed by some of his closest friends, but still his forces refuse to yield to the Ottomans. Scanderbeg dies and it takes ten more years before Mehmed's troops are able to take the White Castle. But Mehmed fails to capture Rome. Even today, Scanderbeg's heroism is remembered by many for defending Western Europe.
