Biography

Ndue Melyshi claimed to been born in Kthelle, Lezhe County, Ottoman Empire (now Albania) on 13 February 1909. His year of birth has been reported as 1911 and 1913 in the past. However, in the most recent article mentioning his death, he claimed that his baptism certificate "states" he was born in 1909, albeit the year being 1911 on his passport.

He supported the monarchy during Albania's National Liberation Movement (1942-1945), and was an opponent of the Communist regime that was installed later. He fled the country in 1952, moving first to Yugoslavia, Italy and West Germany, and eventually settling in the United States, where he lived until 1992. He spent his later years in Shkoder.

Ndue Melyshi died in Shkoder, Shkoder County, Albania on 31 July 2020 at the claimed age of 111 years, 169 days.
