Zog to marry Bulgarian princess?

December 15, 1930

According to a special cable to the New York Times, Bulgaria's Minister at Rome, General Vikoff, "plans to cement Italy's Balkan bloc by a second marriage," that of Princess Eudoxia of Bulgaria to King Zog of Albania.  The report was published in Politika, a Belgrade newspaper.
Diplomats do not credit this report as King Zog "is a Mohammedan," and Princess Eudoxia,  sister of King Boris II of Bulgaria, is Roman Catholic.

Marlene, do you know if Queen Geraldine converted to Islam during her marriage to King Zog?

Geraldine remained a Roman Catholic. She never converted. Queen Susan also remained a Christian.
