According to legend, there were two brothers and their nephew who came to Çabër first and gave it its name. Eventually a village was formed and grew to have a large population. The brothers and their nephew allegedly came from Qafë Prush, which is located on the border of Kosovo (Gjakova) and Albania. The most common surnames in the village are Uka, Kurti, and Mehmeti.


  1. ^ The political status of Kosovo is disputed. Having unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo is formally recognised as a sovereign state by 101 UN member states (with another 13 states recognising it at some point but then withdrawing their recognition) and 92 states not recognizing it, while Serbia continues to claim it as a part of its own territory.
