Robin Hood: the sword and the Magna Carta
By scholarly consensus, the original literary allusion to 'Robin Hood' is found in "Piers Plowman", written in the 's, allegedly by one 'William Langland'. In the text, 'Piers' relates -- "I do not know my paternoster perfectly as the priest sings it, but I know rhymes of Robin Hood and Randolf Earl of Chester". The close association between 'Robert of Loxley' and "Robin Hood" and the literary convention of dating the narratives during the reigns of Richard the Lionhearted and his evil younger brother John Lackland in 19th and 20th century literature and film is largely derivative of Sir Walter Scott's novel "Ivanhoe" Scott appears to have taken the name from an anonymous manuscript, written in , that employs 'Locksley' as an epithet for Robin Hood. Owing to Scott's decision to make use of the manuscript, Robin Hood from Locksley has been transformed for all time into ' Robin of Locksley', alias Robin Hood. There is, incidentally, a village called Loxley in Yorkshire
