About Robin Hood

Robin Hood is a legendary English hero, the outlaw of Sherwood Forest, whose life was first written about in a cycle of ballads. Robin was probably a nobleman of the twelfth century, who, either from choice or because he was outlawed for debt, chose to live in Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire. There he collected around him his band of followers, including Little John, Friar Tuck, Will Scarlet, Maid marian and others.

The legends thet have grown about Robin tell of his skill as an atcher, his generosity to the poor and his courtesy to women and children. He remained true to his king, Richard the Lionheart, who spent many years on the crusades, and during the king's absence Robin stood against the tyranny of the king's brother, John, and his henchman, the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Included here are many of the tales that have made the story of Robin and his companions endearing favourites through the centuries.
