Outlaw
    ( -circa 1247)
    Thought to have resided in Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, England
    Leader of a gang of displaced yeoman or noblemen known as the Merry Men who included Little John, Will Scarlet and Friar Tuck
    Said to have frequently clashed with the Sheriff of Nottingham and Prince John
    Reputed to have robbed from the rich to give to the poor
    Subject of countless songs, stories, plays, comics, movies and TV programs
    It is unclear if he was a thug, an early communist or a chivalrous nobleman (or if he existed at all).
    He and the other Merry Men are often depicted wearing green tights.
    His lady love Maid Marion was probably invented to give his story romantic appeal.
    He allegedly supported absentee king Richard the Lionheart.
    In one ballad he beat up his most loyal follower Little John for defeating him in an archery contest.
    Many districts of England milk his story for tourist dollars.
    Numerous records suggest his legend was based at least in part on an actual yeoman (free farmer).
    Witch expert Margaret Murray argued he was a pagan god.
    He is typically depicted as a champion of the poor and oppressed.
    He and his followers loved to eat, drink and carouse, often inviting travelers to join them.
    He is the most popular folk hero of the English speaking world.
    Modern versions of his story often include an Arab among the Merry Men.
