Written By: Ehsan Jahandarpour

Robin Hood (spelled Robyn Hode in older sources) is a heroic outlaw found in English folklore who, according to legend, was also a highly skilled archer and swordsman. Traditionally depicted as being dressed in Lincoln green, he is often portrayed as “robbing from the rich and giving to the poor” alongside his band of “Merry Men”. Robin Hood became a popular folk figure in the late-medieval period, and continues to be widely represented in modern literature, films and television.
