    Regarding Mother teresa, she was certainly born in Skopje, in August 1910, and at the time the city was the centre of much hostility. It was the capital pf Kosovo Viyalet but Albania took control in 1910, making her an Albanian. Skopje of course is the capital of Macedonia today ! but it was only created after the break up of Yugoslavia , so to say that she was born in Macedonia is incorrect
