An old English folk legend. Herne The Hunter was a poacher and some time gamekeeper of Windsor Forest who was killed in an unholy fashion. Now his antlered spirit is said to wander the wood, claiming the souls of those he meets. He was incorporated into the Robin Hood mythos by the 1980s TV show Robin Of Sherwood in which his appearance in Sherwood Forest encouraged Robert of Loxley to take on the mantle of the Hooded Man and defend the forest and its residents from injustice and black magic. Herne also appeared as a character in the fondly remembered BBC adaptation of the Christmas fantasy story, The Box of Delights.
