Will Scarlet, also known as Will Scathlock, has long been part of the Robin Hood tradition. He appears in three of the four earliest surviving ballads that form the core of the tradition: Robin Hood and the Monk (c. 1450), Robin Hood and Guy of Gisborne (c. 1475-1500), and A Gest of Robyn Hode (c. 1500). Members of the outlaw band are sometimes named, and along with Little John and Much, Will Scarlet / Scathlock is a name that consistently appears in the lists of Robin Hood’s “wild fellows.”
