Comments: There is controversy over just who was the King of the Robin Hood stories. In the legend of today, the King is often portrayed as Richard the Lionheart to whom Robin pledged his allegiance against the evil plots of Prince John. However, some scholars have identified the true King as Edward the second. The debate goes on to this day.
