The Sheriff of Nottingham learned the hard way: Don't mess with Maid Marian!

Thirteen-year-old Maid Marian is on her first adventure with young Robin of Loxley (the future Robin Hood).

The Sheriff of Nottingham has thrown Marian’s father into the dungeon, and only Marian can save her father from the hangman’s noose.
