Even after the fall of the pashaluk in 1831, the Bushatis continued to play an important role in the Albanian society. During the 19th century, Scutari (Shkodër) was also known as a cultural centre and in the 1840s the Bushati Library was built.

be equated with the Sabean kingdom (Sabaeans). Owing to the connection with the Queen of Sheba, the location has thus become closely linked with national prestige, as various royal houses have claimed descent from the Queen of Sheba and Solomon. The most vigorous claimant has been Ethiopia and Eritrea, where Sheba was traditionally linked with the ancient Axumite Kingdom. In the medieval Ethiopian cultural work called the Kebra Nagast, Sheba was located in Ethiopia. Edward Ullendorff, Ethiopia and the Bible (Oxford: University Press for the British Academy, 1968), p. 75 Some scholars therefore point to a region in northern Tigray (Tigray Region) and Eritrea which was once called Saba (later called Meroe), as a possible link with the Biblical Sheba. The Quest for the Ark of the Covenant: The True History of the Tablets of Moses, by Stuart Munro-Hay Other scholars link Sheba with Shewa (also written as Shoa, modern Addis Ababa) in Ethiopia. Donald N. Levine, Wax and Gold: Tradition and Innovation in Ethiopia Culture (Chicago: University Press, 1972) Ruins in many other countries, including Somalia, Sudan, Egypt, Eritrea and Iran have been credited as being Sheba, but with only minimal evidence. There has even been a suggestion of a link between the name "Sheba" and that of Zanzibar, and a massive earthenware monument of the Yoruba people all the way in West Africa known as Sungbo's Eredo actually caused mild excitement when it was first studied by Western scholars due to the tribal folk tradition that the divine personage it was built in honour of was none other than the Queen of Sheba herself. pronunciation Commons:Category:Eritrea WikiPedia:Eritrea Dmoz:Regional Africa Eritrea

Orgetorix is spelled ORCHTIRIX, with the C for G and the H for E. (File:Orgetorix-coin.jpg) '''Orgetorix''' was a wealthy aristocrat among the Helvetii, a Celtic-speaking people residing in what is now Switzerland during the consulship of Julius Caesar of the Roman Republic. In 61 BC he convinced the Helvetians to attempt to migrate from Helvetian territory to south-western Gaul (modern-day France). He was also party to a clandestine arrangement with Dumnorix of the Aedui and Casticus of the Sequani to seize control of their respective tribes by arms and between them rule most of Gaul.
