Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Albanian Mythology comprises myths and legends of the Albanians. The elements of Albanian mythology are of Paleo-Balkanic origin and almost all of them are pagan. Albanian myths can be divided into two major groups: legends of metamorphosis and historical legends. Many of the characters of the Albanian mythology are included in the Albanian Songs of the Frontier Warriors, the traditional cycle of Albanian epic songs. In various occasions there is a certain decree of Greek and Latin influence, while some mythological figures derive from their originals from Greek Mythology.
