In fact, that Greek "envy" of the Southern part of Albania would be a factor in how World War II developed in 1941. That is possibly the largest "ultimate consequence" of the Old Powers' decision to support the Albanian state in 1912. I think Lloyd George's government was also supportive of keeping the Italians and Greeks out of Albania.Wasn't Albania already perceived as being a failed state even in the 1910s, though? I seem to recall Greece, Italy, and Serbia/Yugoslavia wanting to partition Albania after WWI and only being stopped by US President Woodrow Wilson.
