    Roger Godberd

    Roger Godberd was a medieval outlaw who has been suggested as a possible historical basis for the legend of Robin Hood.Godberd served under Simon de Montfort, the 6th Earl of Leicester, as well as two other barons.In 1265 Godberd was outlawed for fighting against King Henry III in the Battle of Evesham. Nearly two centuries later, in about 1446, Walter Bower claimed that Robin Hood also became an outlaw as a result of this battle.[In October 1267, Godberd settled in Sherwood Forest. He lived there for four years defying the authorities. He could call upon a hundred men, but was eventually caught in 1272.Reginald de Grey was the Sheriff of Nottingham at this time. Godberd was captured in the grounds of Rufford Abbey, and from there taken to Nottingham Castle, but managed to escape. A prominent local knight named Richard Foliot helped Godberd and his fellow fugitives, and protected them from the Sheriff.
