The London Peace Conference – or Conference of Ambassadors as it’s also known – was held in the capital between 1912 and 1913. It was a summit of Britain, France, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia and Italy. Why these particular countries, you ask? They were all the great powers of the time.

The summit was chaired by Edward Grey, who was the British Foreign Secretary. Should you want to know, the Conference came about as a result of the successes of the Balkan League against the Ottoman Empire during the first Balkan War against Turkey. Pretty dull, I know. The aim of the Conference was to arbitrate territorial claims, and to determine the future of Albania, which had become an independent country as a result of the conflict.

Lucky for you, that’s pretty much all you need to know!
