Robin hood a legendary hero

For years, historians have been studying if Robin was a real figure or a legendary figure. Probably Robin Hood was an outlaw named Robert Hode. It’s more difficult understand how 'Robinhood‘ became the nickname used by court officials to indicate any lawless. For example, a man named "William Robinhood" was tried for theft in 1261. Today, in the USA, the criminals are sometimes called 'hoods'.

Robin is associated (as the Saxon rebels) to life in the forest. The legend of Robin seems to coincide with Robin Duke of Huntigdon, who lived at the time of the Norman Conquest, who died before 1100, whose tomb (or supposed) to Kirklees is engraved the following inscription:

Robert Earl of HuntingdonLies under this little stone.No archer was like him so good;His wildness named him ROBIN HOOD.For thirteen years, and something more,These northern parts he vexed sore.Such outlaws as he and his menMay Englandnever know again

  • Robert Duca di HuntingdonGiace sotto questa pietraNessun arciere fu pari a luiPer la sua natura fu detto ROBIN HOOD.Per tredici anni e piùQueste terre del nord egli rese aride.Fuorilegge come lui ed i suoi uominiPossa l’Inghilterra non vederne più.
