  3. 3. Introduction Nowadays people think that tales and legends are not real. But each tale has an encoded set of rules of how to survive and have a prosperous life. Most Lithuanian tales have a common plot. It is a battle between bad and good powers. A vulnerable and gentle representative of Good usually does not break the code of proper behaviour. Thus he/she is supported by mystic (magicians, witches) and natural (birds, insects, plants) forces or household objects, and manages to get benefit (marry prince or princess, get a crown, wealth etc.) for the rest of his/her life. Usually in the start, the bad side is stronger, but, after, good characters win. This happens because of strong links and ties between them. Moreover, they have familiar aims. 2/14/2010

This legend is unique, because there is included a deep idea of solidarity – fighting in all possible for one main reason; to defend their independence. The legend starts in the old castle. Princess of Pilėnai Mirta escaped with the enemy and after showed him the secret enter into Pilėnai. Then the enemies attacked the castle. When they had almost broken the gates of Pilėnai, the duke Margiris suggested every man to fight do death, with no surrender. Women, children and the old refused to be imprisoned and chose to burn themselves and the castle. All Pilėnai people died. When the enemies entered through the gates they saw no treasures in the castle, only lots of blood and fire... 2/14/2010
