“Qachaq Nabi” (“Qaçaq Nebi”) is another one that recounts the bravery of Qachaq Nabi, an Azerbaijani national hero who led a peasant uprising against the tsar in Russia during the 19th century.

“Koroghlu” (“Koroglu”) tells the story of Koroghlu, a semi-mystical hero and bard among the Turkic peoples who is believed to have lived in the 16th century.
