In the era when Richard the Lion-Hearted is absent on his Crusade and his evil brother John is ruling England with a tyrannical hand, Sir John de Courtenay dies and bequeaths his estate to his two sons, Roger and Henry, and their cousin, Robin. When Roger murders his brother and tries to incriminate Robin, Robin flees with the loyal Friar Tuck to the relative safety of Sherwood Forest. Upon encountering a band of outlaws, Robin displays such skill with the bow and arrow that he is elected their leader. Before long, he becomes the legendary Robin Hood, robbing the rich to help the poor, while outwitting Roger and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Determined to lure Robin into a trap, the sheriff and Roger decide to hang an innocent man at a fair. Robin and his men save the man, however, and later storm Courtenay Castle to rescue Lady Marian, the sister of one of Robin's men. Though Roger is killed, the sheriff escapes. Robin then marries Maid Marian and returns with Friar Tuck to his band of Sherwood Forest outlaws.
