Some chroniclers place his exploits during the reign of Edward II, while others place them during the reign of Richard I, the Lionheart. Robin fought alongside Richard the Lionheart in the Crusades before returning to England to find his lands seized by the Sheriff.

Robin Hooda Death Told

Meanwhile, The story of Robin Hooda’s death is told in the same way in existing stories since history. As he grew older and became very sich, he moved to Kirklees Priory near Huddersfield with his Little John to be treated by his aunt, the Prioress, but Sir Roger de Doncaster persuaded her to murder her nephew, and the Prioress slowly bled Robin to death. He sounded his horn with the last of his power, and Little John came to his rescue, but it was too late at that time.

Little John took Robin’s bow in his hand and led him to a window, through which Robin managed to fling one arrow. Robin requested that Little John bury him where the arrow landed, which he did.

So, Hooda existed, but not in the same way that we all think of Robin Hooda, the cinematic Robin of Sherwood, Prince of Thieves! His story, on the other hand, is one of the most well-known in English folklore.
