Notable Britons   Legends   The Polish Robin Hood

According to legend and tradition Robin Hood was a lovable outlaw who as an expert archer was adept at poaching the king's deer from his hideout in the forest of Sherwood. Stories relate how wealthy travellers through Sherwood forest were robbed and their belongings given to the poor by Robin Hood and his band of "Merry Men" (and women). Stories also tell of how Robin tricked and outwitted the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his henchman Sir Guy of Gisbourne, and dealt with corrupt churchmen and officials who abused their power over an oppressed peasantry.
