This book contains some information about Serbian Folk Lore, Folk customs, a little theorizing about pre-Christian religion in Serbia and other Serbian legends but the bulk of this book is about Prince Marko. It would be very inaccurate to try to say he fits this description exactly but in a sense he is the Serb version of King Arthur. Overall an interesting and entertaining read if this sort of thing interests you.
