Thread Name: Robin Hood in the Crusades?
Subject: RE: Robin Hood in the Crusades?
All the television Robin Hoods had the time period when Richard 1st (The Lionheart) was away on the Crusades, leaving King John (of the Magna Carta fame) becoming Robin Hoods arch enemy

My impression was that Robin (Richard of Loxley) had been away on the Crusades and had returned to find his lands confiscated by King John etc

All probably fictitious I suppose!
