Ibong Adarna is an epic written in the 15th Century about an eponymous magical bird. The title's longer form during the Spanish Era was "Korrido at Buhay na Pinagdaanan ng Tatlóng Principeng Magkakapatid na anak nang Haring Fernando at nang Reyna Valeriana sa Kahariang Berbania" (Filipino for "Corrido and Life Lived by the Three Princes, children of King Fernando and Queen Valeriana in the Kingdom of Berbania"). The author of the largely known epic was claimed to be José de la Cruz or "Huseng Sisiw", but until now the real author was never known. The legend say that the story is written in Spain during mid 15th century by Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. The epic was brought in the Philippines during 1565.
