Ali Pasha of Yannina (1740-1822), the Ottoman Albanian ruler of the western part of Rumelia, in a rowing boat with six oarsmen and bodyguard, smoking a pipe. From Louis Dupré's ''Voyage à Athènes et à Constantinople''. Lord Byron visited the court of Ai in Ioannina in 1809 and had very mixed feelings about him and his court. Ali Pasha was notorious throughout the region for the cruelties inflicted on his subjects, from torture to rape and even murder. In 1820 the tensions with the Turkish Reforms grew and after two years of fighting the Ottoman forces took hold of Ioannina forcing Ali Pasha to surrender. He was asked to surrender for beheading, which he refused and continued to fight until he was eventually shot.
