There is heavy debate regarding this being a myth parallel or historical anchor as it has elements of both.

On the historical side, the year is 1244 (some 50 years after the death of Richard I) and “Robin Hood” lives in Barnsdale Wood from where he robs papal tax collectors during the reign of King Henry III (Though the earliest surviving texts have Robin Hood living in the time of a "King Edward").

On the myth side, Maid Marian (a character derived from the French story of a shepherdess named Marion and her shepherd lover Robin, recorded in Adam de la Halle's Le Jeu de Robin et Marion, circa 1283) also actually exists.

Time Tours "robs" rich Homeliners with an annual Fair and gives the results to the poor people of Nottingham....minus their cut of course.
