The greatest mysteries of history unveiled
An episode from the series SECRETS OF HISTORY - ENIGMAS
Everyone knows Robin Hood. Errol Flynn, Douglas Fairbanks, Sean Connery or Kevin Costner have played this hero with a big heart in movies. But is he a legendary figure or did Robin Hood really exist?
An outlaw, he lived hidden in the Sherwood Forest. Many minstrels ballads praise his feats. Little John and Brother Tuck are his best known companions.
For historians, he is above all a folk hero of the Middle Ages.
