Stories

Robin Hood and the Baron of Bottomly

Summary: Alan-a-Dale tells of a time Friar Tuck brought news of a new bread tax to Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Little John suggests robbing a rich merchant and giving the money to the poor so they can buy bread, but Robin says he hasn't seen any lately. A traveler, fearing being robbed, reports his money has all been taken by the Blue Baron of Bottomly, a tax collector meaner than the Sheriff of Nottingham. They spy the baron bringing money to the castle, but it's only a fraction of what he's collected. Robin disguises himself and tells Prince John that the baron has heaps of gold in his dungeons. The greedy prince tells Sir Hiss to have his men go collect the baron's gold. Robin and Little John infiltrate the baron's castle while the prince's men load a wagon with the gold. Then Robin tricks them and steals the wagon and distributes the money to the poor people of Bottomly, Nottingham, and Sherwood Forest.
