A question that I will invariably ask people when we are talking old legends or medieval is this. Who do you like better, Robin Hood or King Arthur? Not just the people themselves, but their stories, their characters and places as well. :)
Okay, well obviously I've read and know a lot more about Robin Hood. I have read probably only one series of King Arthur books all the way through, these being my Squire Tales, others I have skip-read or flicked to different stories in it but not read all of it.
Now, me, I'm a Hoodie (Robin Hood all the way!) but maybe the main difference with the King Arthur legends and the Robin Hood legends is this: The Arthurian Legends don't always focus on King Arthur, they sometimes go and follow the adventures of one of his knights, or maybe him, but it is not always definite.
And I think the idea of living in the Green Wood, fighting the Sheriff's men sounds pretty cool. Being a knight would be good as well, but I'd prefer the former.
And I think I always will.
What about you?
