Robin Hood and his — how many merry men??! #history #folklore
It has been a little bit quiet on the blog these past weeks, and I do apologies for that. I am rather caught up in writing Book 3 of The Du Lac Chronicles, but I haven't forgotten you, I promise!
If you are a regular reader of this blog then you know that I had just started to research the life and times of Robin Hood late last year, but what with the release of The Du Lac Devil and Christmas, I got a little side-tracked, but I am back on the straight and narrow, and I am keen to find out more about the elusive Robin Hood.
Let's have a quick recap of what I have talked about before and if you have missed any of the posts you can catch up!
Robin Hood & King Richard ~ the strangest alliance in history.
Continuing from where I left off, I want to have a look at Robin’s band of merry men.
I wonder, how many merry men can you list?
Little John ~ the tall guy who was good with a stick.
Friar Tuck ~ the monk.
Will Scarlett ~ the bad tempered one.
Much the Miller's son ~ the simpleton.
Maid Marion ~ Robin’s bride.
David of Doncaster
In the coming weeks I am going to be looking closely at Robin's band of merry men ~ I am so excited to learn more about this motley crew, I hope you are too!
