NOTE — the tales and legends dealing with Marko Kralyevich exist to-day in a long series of independent works which are at times contradictory in names, in localities, and in culture. The author has aimed to bring together a selection of this material, so that it will give a picture of the life and character of the great Balkan hero as the highest imagination of his people conceives him. For this purpose the author has not hesitated to omit details (very few in number) which are in glaring contradiction to the character of Marko as the ballad writers generally picture him.
I wish to express my gratitude for assistance in this task to the Right Reverend Nicholai, Bishop of Ohrid, and to the distinguished poet, Dr. Ante Tresic-Pavicic, sometime Royal Yugoslav Minister to the United States.
