Born Nov. 9,1879, in Lepoglava; died Nov. 19,1931, in Zagreb. Croatian historian and political figure.

A graduate of the University of Zagreb, Šufflay was a professor of subsidiary historical disciplines at the university from 1908 to 1918. After the establishment in December 1918 of the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes (since 1929, Yugoslavia), he became a leader of the Croatian nationalist Party of Rights. Sufflay incorporated a broad range of sources in his works on the history of Croatian-Byzantine relations in the 11th and 12th centuries, the history of medieval Albania, and the study of sources for medieval Dalmatia.
