Maid Marian
Maid Marian
(or Marion) is the love interest of the legendary outlaw Robin Hood
Robin Hood
in English folklore. Maid Marian
Maid Marian
was in origin a "shepherdess" figure associated with May Day. Her role as the love interest of Robin Hood
Robin Hood
dates to at least the 16th century.[1] She is typically portrayed as beautiful, confident, and sincere in her love of Robin Hood. Often, she is a noblewoman in the stories, though sometimes she is a commoner. Most modern Robin Hood
Robin Hood
stories feature her prominently and present her as an admirable woman. Of particular note is Marian's independence and relative equality to her lover, marking her as one of the earliest strong female characters in English literature.

History[edit]

(1912). Maid Marion wears a Tyrolean hat

Maid Marian
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 Whitsun)[2] and is sometimes associated with the Queen or Lady of May or May Day. Jim Lees in The Quest for Robin Hood
Robin Hood
(p. 81) suggests that Maid Marian
Maid Marian
was originally a personification of the Virgin Mary. Both a "Robin" and a "Marian" character were associated with May Day
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 Halle's Le Jeu de Robin et Marion, circa 1283.[3] It isn't clear if there was an association of the early "outlaw" character of Robin Hood
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
Robin Hood
with May Day had again faded.[5] The early Robin Hood
Robin Hood
is also given a "shepherdess" love interest, in Robin Hood's Birth, Breeding, Valor, and Marriage ( Child Ballad
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
Robin Hood
character, portrayed as a historical outlawed nobleman, emerges in the late 16th century. From this time, Maid Marian
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
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 Robin's lawfully-wedded 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
Brighouse
in West Yorkshire.[9] The 19th century antiquarian, Joseph Hunter, identified a Robert Hood, yeoman[10] from Wakefield, Yorkshire, in the archives preserved in the Exchequer, whose personal story matched very closely the story of Robin in Robert Munday's 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
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.[9] If these parallels are not coincidental, then the Marian of Robin Hood
Robin Hood
fame, whose origins may be distinct from the Marian of the May games or of Monday's play, may derive all her roots from her association with the historical Robert Hood of Wakefield.[12] In an Elizabethan play, Anthony Munday identified Maid Marian
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 John's attempts to seduce Matilda).[13][14] In later versions of Robin Hood, Maid Marian
Maid Marian
is commonly named as "Marian Fitzwalter."[15][16] In Robin Hood
Robin Hood
and Maid Marian
Maid Marian
( Child Ballad
Child Ballad
150, perhaps dating to the 17th century), Maid Marian
Maid Marian
is "a bonny fine maid of a noble degree" said to excel both Helen and Jane Shore
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
Robin Hood
forwarded in the late 16th century.[17] 20th-century pop culture adaptations of the Robin Hood
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 1938's 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.[18] In The Story of Robin Hood
Robin Hood
and His Merrie Men (1952), she, despite being a lady-in-waiting to Eleanor of Aquitaine
Eleanor of Aquitaine
during the Crusades, is in reality a mischievous tomboy capable of fleeing boldly to the countryside disguised as a boy.[19] In the Kevin Costner epic Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, she is a maternal cousin to the sovereign, while in the BBC
BBC
TV Show adaption of 2006, she is the daughter of the former Sheriff and was betrothed to Robin prior to his leaving for the Holy Land. Maid Marian's role as a prototypical strong female character has also made her a popular focus in feminist fiction. Theresa Tomlinson's Forestwife novels (1993–2000) are told from Marian's point of view, portray Marian as a high-born Norman girl escaping entrapment in an arranged marriage. With the aid of her nurse, she runs away to Sherwood Forest, where she becomes acquainted with Robin Hood
Robin Hood
and his men. Literature[edit] There have been several books based on the fictional character:

appears in a chapter of T.H. White's The Sword in the Stone, the first book in The Once and Future King. Wart (the young King Arthur) and his step brother Kay meet her and Robin when they go into the forest for an adventure and set out with the outlaws to rescue people Morgan le Fey kidnapped. When they meet her, it is quickly made apparent that Marian is strong and capable in battle and the narrator mentions that she could walk or even wiggle on her stomach like a snake faster than the boys could follow. The "Robin & Marian Mysteries" by Clayton Emery, appearing in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine
Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine
and elsewhere, feature the outlaw husband-wife team as amateur detectives solving bizarre murders. Mentioned in The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla, by Stephen King. Said to be the maid of Lady Oriza (a rice God and heroine), who helped her trick and kill the outlaw Gray Dick and then "went on to have many fanciful adventures of her own".[20]
