IF YOU LIKE; READ THIS :

The Kanun or formally the Kanuni i Lekë Dukagjinit (English: The Code of Lekë Dukagjini)[1] is a set of laws developed by Lekë Dukagjini and used mostly in northern Albania and Kosovo from the 15th century until the 20th century and revived recently after the fall of the communist regime in the early 1990s.

This set of laws was a customary one, passed down through the generations, and not codified and written down until the 19th century by Shtjefën Gjeçovi; the rules evolved over time as a way to bring laws and rule to these lands.

 

The code was divided into several sections: Church, Family, Marriage, House, Livestock and Property, Work, Transfer of Property, Spoken Word, Honor, Damages, Law Regarding Crimes, Judicial Law, and Exemptions and Exceptions.[2]

 

Some of the most infamous rules specified how murder was supposed to be handled, and it often led to blood feuds that lasted until all the men of the two involved families were killed. In some parts of the country, the Kanun resembles the Italian vendetta. (WIKI)
