Robin Hood Through the Ages
The Play's the Thing
The story of Robin Hood has evolved over the centuries. In earlier tellings of the tale, Hood was depicted as a pious yeoman under the reign of an unspecified King Edward. By the 1500s, the hero's timeline paralleled the era of King Richard the Lionheart and the Third Crusade. By 1598, Hood was portrayed as a nobleman in two plays by Anthony Munday, The Downfall of Robert Earl of Huntington and The Death of Robert Earl of Huntington. In 1895's Runnymede, by William Greer Harrison, Hood clashes with John of Anjou in support of the absent King Richard.
