Robin HoodSlide6

Robin HoodIn the popular versions of the myth, Robin is said to have lived in England and had his adventures while King Richard the lionhearted was away on the Third Crusade. In his absence, Prince John, Richard’s younger brother schemed against the control that their mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine and the regent, William

Longchamp

had over England and their other lands. Slide7

Robin HoodWhile Richard was on Crusade, he spent a lot of the treasury on his efforts to regain the Holy Land, and raised taxes and took huge loans. He sold offices, and once said he would sell even England if he could get enough money to pay for the Crusades that way.He still earned a reputation as a strong man and brave soldier, getting the nickname Lionhearted.Slide8

Robin HoodSlide9

Robin HoodThe Crusades were a series of religious wars where Europeans tried to reclaim the Holy Land from Muslim control.The first was in 1096 and lasted until 1099 when the European Christians were successful in taking most of Israel, Lebanon, Syrian and Jordan.The rest of the Crusades were unsuccessful, and by the 1290s almost all of the

land gained was lost.
