The theme song for "Xena: Warrior Princess" was a modified version of "Kaval Sviri (The Flute Plays)" from "Le Mystere Des Voix Bulgares". In the original "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" episode where Xena was introduced, the original Kaval Sviri was the music used to announce Xena racing into battle. The Yale Women's Slavic Chorus did an excellent rendition of the song on their website(http://www.yale.edu/ysc/media.htm), which also includes a translation: the song is a young woman's declaration of love for a stranger playing pipes in a village. According to the YWSC, it's lyrics are translated as, "A piper is playing in the village. Mother, if that piper is from our village, I will love him from today till tomorrow around noon. If he is from a neighboring village, though, I'll love him my whole life." See more
When Draco is talking to Xena in the tent, he says "...I guarantee it". This is historically inaccurate since the term "guarantee" dates back to as early as the 15th century, long after the supposed time period in which the series takes place. Actually, every single English word spoken in the show should be a goof, every character being theoretically speaking ancient Greek, Latin or another ancient language. See more
