Agents of Empire: Who were the Bruni and Bruti families? [infographic]

Representing a broad span of empires, cultures and religions during the sixteenth century, the Bruni and Bruti families exemplify a snapshot of Albania at a time when European and Ottoman histories collided. Only a small piece of the greater  story, Noel Malcolm uses the Bruni and Bruti families to paint a  panoramic landscape of history that covers the Venetian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Papacy, Malta, North Africa, Spain, southern France, Poland, and the Holy Roman Empire.
