    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Robin of Locksley is given his nickname of Robin Hood after he lost his lands by becoming an outlaw and from the hood he wore when saving Edgar from the foresters.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Tom: I said the day of vengeance would come, Martha! Master Robin will strike down every last one of them!
        Robin: I've had my fill of bloodshed in the past four years, Tom, crusading with King Richard. I've come back to visit my father's grave and claim my inheritance, then I want to settle down peacefully.
        Tom: There's no peace left! They'll kill you unless you kill them first!

      • Martha: Everything's changed since you went, Master Robin. Sometimes I think when Tom raves about blood and death to the Normans he's the only sane one of us left.

      • Roger de Lisle: Then the stupid dog of a Saxon serf refused to get down on his knees. So I drew me sword and sliced off his ear!
        (everyone laughs and Roger gestures to a servant)
        Roger de Lisle: More wine. Be quick, I told you to keep the cups filled! Now, where was I?
        Lady de Lisle: You were carving up a serf, my bold liege.

      • Clerk: (to Robin) You crusaders are all alike! You volunteer to go to the war of your own accord, nobody makes you go, and then you expect special consideration because of it!
