I'm going to start rewriting this on the basis of the ODNB article. Peter Jackson 16:23, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Something has gone wrong somewhere. The main page of the article gives no link to the talk page or any other sub-page. --Martin Wyatt 18:03, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

You just lost the subpages template for a bit... Fixed it for you. D. Matt Innis 18:41, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

The Ivanhoe connection

The statement that in Ivanhoe Robin Hood leads Saxon resistance against the Normans is not quite correct. In the tale he immediately kneels when the incognito king Richard reveals himself (and also, incidentally, confesses to being Robin Hood). However, I cannot think of a way to re-word it briefly. --Martin Wyatt 19:32, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

My version is 3rd-hand, based on the ODNB entry. If you've actually read Ivanhoe then you should eventually be able to do a better job. I've never read it, though I did watch a TV serialization long ago. Peter Jackson 11:21, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
I have had a go, but without going into more of the plot (which would be out of place) I think it is difficult to say what role R H plays in the novel. However, as it seems to colour much of the modern view of him, it does need some mention. --Martin Wyatt 21:52, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
