Maid Marian or Marion is the love interest of the legendary outlaw Robin Hood in English folklore Maid Marian was in origin a shepherdess figure associated with May Day Her role as the love interest of Robin Hood dates to at least the 16th century 1 Contents 1 History 2 Literature 3 Television 4 Movies 5 References 6 External links Historyedit Maid Marian is never mentioned in any of the earliest extant ballads of Robin Hood She appears to have originally been a character in May Games festivities held during May and early June most commonly around Whitsun2 and is sometimes associated with the Queen or Lady of May or May Day Jim Lees in The Quest for Robin Hood p  81 suggests that Maid Marian was originally a personification of the Virgin Mary Both a Robin and a Marian character were associated with May Day by the 15th century but these figures were apparently part of separate traditions the Marian of the May Games is likely derived from the French tradition of a shepherdess named Marion and her shepherd lover Robin recorded in Adam de la Halles Le Jeu de Robin et Marion circa 1283 3 It isnt clear if there was an association of the early outlaw character of Robin Hood and the early May Day character Robin but they did become identified and associated with the Marian character by the 16th century Alexander Barclay writing in c 1500 refers to some merry fytte of Maid Marian or else of Robin Hood 4 Marian remained associated with May Day celebrations even after the association of Robin Hood with May Day had again faded 5 The early Robin Hood is also given a shepherdess love interest in Robin Hoods Birth Breeding Valor and Marriage Child Ballad 149 his sweetheart is Clorinda the Queen of the Shepherdesses 6 Clorinda survives in some later stories as an alias of Marian 7 The gentrified Robin Hood character portrayed as a historical outlawed nobleman emerges in the late 16th century From this time Maid Marian is also cast in terms of a noblewoman even though her role was never entirely virginal and she retained aspects of her shepherdess or May Day characteristics in 1592 Thomas Nashe described the Marian of the later May Games as being played by a male actor named Martin and there are hints in the play of Robin Hood and the Friar that the female character in these plays had become a lewd parody Robin was originally called Ryder In the play The Downfall of Robert Earl of Huntingdon by Robert Munday which was written in 1598 Marian appears as Robins lawfullywedded wife who changes her name from Matilda when she joins him in the greenwood 8 She also has a cousin called Elizabeth de Staynton who is described as being the Prioress of Kirklees Priory near Brighouse in West Yorkshire 9 The 19th century antiquarian Joseph Hunter identified a Robert Hood10 from Wakefield Yorkshire in the archives preserved in the Exchequer whose personal story matched very closely the story of Robin in Robert Mundays play and this Robert Hood also married a woman named Matilda who changed her name to Marian when she joined him in exile in Barnsdale Forest following the Battle of Boroughbridge in 1322 and who also had a cousin named Elizabeth de Staynton 11 who was Prioress of Kirklees Priory 12 If these parallels are not coincidental then the Marian of Robin Hood fame whose origins may be distinct from the Marian of the May games or of Mundays play may derive all her roots from her association with the historical Robert Hood of Wakefield 13 In an Elizabethan play Anthony Munday identified Maid Marian with the historical Matilda daughter of Robert Fitzwalter who had to flee England because of an attempt to assassinate King John legendarily attributed to King Johns attempts to seduce Matilda 1415 In later versions of Robin Hood Maid Marian is commonly named as Marian Fitzwalter 1617 In Robin Hood and Maid Marian Child Ballad 150 perhaps dating to the 17th century Maid Marian is a bonny fine maid of a noble degree said to excel both Helen and Jane Shore in beauty Separated from her lover she dresses as a page and ranged the wood to find Robin Hood who was himself disguised so that the two begin to fight when they meet As is often the case in these ballads Robin Hood loses the fight to comical effect and Marian only recognizes him when he asks for quarter This ballad is in the Earl of Huntington tradition a supposed historical identity of Robin Hood forwarded in the late 16th century 18 20thcentury pop culture adaptations of the Robin Hood legend have almost invariably featured a Maid Marian and have mostly made her a highborn woman with a rebellious or tomboy character In 1938s The Adventures of Robin Hood she is a courageous and loyal woman played by Olivia de Havilland and a ward of the court an orphaned noblewoman under the protection of King Richard Although always ladylike her initial antagonism to Robin springs not from aristocratic disdain but out of an aversion to robbery 19 In The

countryside disguised as a boy 20 In the Kevin Costner epic Robin Hood Prince of Thieves she is a maternal cousin to the sovereign while in the BBC TV Show adaption of 2006 she is the daughter of the
