By Tony Molyneux-Smith

A fascinating examination of what may truly lie behind the legend of Nottinghamshire’s internationally famous folk hero.

Tony Molyneux-Smith investigates the widely discussed theory that, far from being a single person, Robin Hood was actually a pseudonym taken by several descendants of Sir Robert Foliot – whose family held the lordship of the village of Wellow   in north Nottinghamshire.  His search for verification takes many surprising twists and turns, and this book is must for anyone who is interested in the real Robin Hood.
