Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore, whose story originates from medieval times. In popular culture, tales are usually associated with Robin Hood and his band against the Sheriff of Nottingham in Sherwood Forest. According to legend, he was a highly skilled archer and swordsman. Traditionally, he is said to rob from the rich and give to the poor, alongside his band of Merry Men. Ballads dating back to the 15th century are the oldest existing form of the Robin Hood legends.
Many historians believe Robin Hood was a real person known as Robin of Loxley, who was born in 1160 and lived to 1247. Historically, he fought in the third Crusade and when he returned, Prince John had set high taxes. The rest of the story became folk lore.
