Robin Hood Quiz :)

Hello, my lovely readers! I have gone over a week without blogging, and this is my first post this month...this is tragic! We shall have to fix this.

I have been insanely busy with college classes/homework, which is my only real excuse for not blogging, and trust me, it's a legitimate excuse.

Along the lines of college....for AEC (Academic Excellence Challenge) I am required once a week to write questions on either my strengths or my weaknesses. Last week I decided to write my questions over not only a strength, but something I know as well as my own name and is just as dear to my heart. I wrote questions about Robin Hood! And I've decided I want to share them with you, so that is what I am going to do. I'll post the answers soon enough. You should be able to figure these out, they aren't too hard. If you don't get the first one, I will either die of laughter or I will cry. If you think you know, be sure and comment with your answers! :)

1. This legendary figure is dear to both American and English hearts, though his actual existence is debatable. The first clear reference to this legend is in the late fourteenth century poem, Piers Plowman. Renowned with the bow, and in the modern day renowned as a hero of national scale, name this man who has recently become known for 'robbing from the rich to feed the poor'

2. Name this friend of Robin Hood and member of the 'merry men' who is known for beating Robin in a quarter staff fight on a bridge.

3. Although in the original ballads Robin Hood's lover was the shepherdess Clorinda, name Robin Hood's more well-known love interest.

4. Maid Marian and THIS MEMBER of the 'merry men' were two of the last characters to join the tale, entering the legend through the 16th century May Day Games.
