The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 181

Therein are Christians and Saracens and beautiful women, and that country is called Albania, and if any man give a feast in that kingdom unless he give poisonous serpents at the feasts more evil is said of him than good. White wool, such as is on the sheep of our country, is on the hens of that country like feathers. Every woman who has a wedded husband has a crown round her head as a sign of marriage.
