Robin Hood

(2009)
The Unknown Templar
A non fiction book by

 
 
From the international best-selling author of The Cortes Enigma and The Templar Agenda, comes the true story behind the myth and legend of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men.

Robin Hood, the legendary outlaw of Sherwood Forest, is a figure who has baffled historians for hundreds of years. The earliest references to him occur in ballads and chronicles, fixing him and his Merry Men squarely in the realm of folk tale.

While researching the Knights Templar for his fiction, Joh Paul Davis uncovered persuasive evidence suggesting that Robin Hood was, in fact, a real person with close ties to the religious military order. Adhering closely to historical sources, the author discusses the origins of the legend and traditional portrayals of the charismatic, freedom-loving outlaw and offers startling new insights into the character on whom he is based, who probably lived a hundred years or so later than the Robin of legend.

Robin Hood: The Unknown Templar will be of keen interest to anyone who has been intrigued by the myth and legend.
