The Battle of Torviolli and the historic victory was the first fruit of the

On the occasion of the anniversary of the historic victory at the Battle of Torviol. Battle of Torviolli or Dibra - dated June 29, 1444, a battle where Gjergj Kastrioti, as a strategist, visionary and talented leader, managed to defeat with his strategy and tactics of martial arts ability Ali Pasha, as commander of a unit of the Ottoman (Turkish) army with about 40,000 troops. After they had arrived in this territory, they had usurped the property of the Arberians, killed women and children, looted all the property of the Arberians of this part, and ordered everyone else to leave their homes and property. However, after encountering a strong resistance with the troops of Gjergj Kastriot, Ali Pasha was immediately defeated for a short time, and thus the country had taken on its appearance of normal life and perpetual vitality, in the development of their ancient lands of the nation. Gjergj Kastrioti resisted in this battle with an army of 15,000 troops, 8,000 cavalry and 7,000 infantry. Regarding this battle, here is what the famous biographer Marin Barelti writes: “(...) From this, the army, everywhere victorious, remembered the great victory in this battle and was admiring that great work done in such a short time. Nearly 22,000 barbarians were killed in this war, while another 2,000 were captured alive. Thus the Epirotes that day, as all hoped and expected, reaped a truly great victory, for in that battle nothing was lacking from those who had the opportunity, not only Skanderbeg, ideator of the European Union 49 to provoke the fate of appearing white-faced, but also to force him to do so; there was no lack of time, no place, no perfect order in all actions, no just and at the same time necessary reason to fight. Finally, to the commanders and soldiers I could say this: That day the lions commanded the lion! A small number of these were veterans, who had once served as soldiers together with Gjergj Kastriot's father, so you could take them not as soldiers, but as elected masters of the army. So it seemed that if they won such a battle and broke the enemy's nose once, the war would be over. After the victory was achieved, Gjergj Kastrioti spent the whole day and that night in the camp with the greatest calm. but also to compel him to do so; there was no lack of time, no place, no perfect order in all actions, no just and at the same time necessary reason to fight.

In the morning, full of pride for the victory, you get to work (...). Inflated by the victory he had just reaped, the cavalry flew with joy and spared nothing that the sword and fire could destroy, except women and children (...). No one weighed down, did not feel fatigue; the men had just lost their sweat (....). After spending that night in the camp, Gjergj Kastrioti, the next day, when the light had just dawned, gave the order to collect the loot and together with the victorious army set out for the royal city of Kruja. The people, who had poured in all the streets, were waiting for them with cheers, calling them winners one by one. Everyone was amazed at the great booty. The young knights were barely known by their men. Congratulations were sent for many days, and all the princes of Epirus were sent letters laurel-crowned, as well as some military flags; another part of them were stuck in the shrines. "

Ishte tepër e qartë se pas unitetit të bërë në Kuvendin e Lezhës më 2 mars të vitit 1444, së bashku me kryefisnorët dhe fisnorët dhe përfaqësuesit e tjerë diplomatik, Gjergj Kastrioti, së bashku me mbështetësit e tij ishin në gjendje pothuajse për t’i shtypur në kokë të gjitha veprimet e armikut, duke mos lejuar asnjë hap më tutje të këtij pushtuesi të egër turk. Kështu, mund të thuhet se kjo betejë u shndërrua në betejë të guximit, të entuziazmit për më tutje, betejë për të pasur arsye edhe më shumë se vetëm tek uniteti – ashtu siç edhe thoshte në fjalimin e tij Gjergj Kastrioti – është fuqia e atij lumi që rrjedh nga të gjitha anët, por që mblidhet në një shtrat të përbashkët. Kjo fuqi u pa qartë se jo vetëm përbënte efektivin e procesit të arritjes së synimeve dhe idealeve të larat të kombit shqiptar europian, por edhe arrinte korrjen e fitores ndaj armikut barbar turk që e kërcënonte vazhdimisht qenien e kombit arbëror.

Here is seen the first fruit of the unity of the nation through chiefs and tribes, established in the Assembly of Lezha. So here it is seen that the common steps are decisive steps and that strongly defend, as eternal pillars, the common home of the nation and of our European national identity.
