The Mabinogion is the name generally given to a collection of eleven tales. It is preserved in two medieval Welsh manuscripts, the White Book of Rhydderch (ca. 1300-1325) and the Red Book of Hergest (ca. 1375-1425). Fragments of these tales are found in 13th century manuscripts, but they are believed to be even older.

Eleven stories are classified as being part of being the Maginogion, based on the original English translation by the 19th century Lady Charlotte Guest.
