Will Scarlet

To Heros and Villains


Titian (1490–1576) Portrait of a Man in a Red Cap Date circa 1510 Titian (1490–1576) Portrait of a Man in a Red Cap Date circa 1510

A prominent member of Robin Hood's Merry Men. He is in his late teens hot-headed and tempestuous, but with a love of fine elegant clothes and is often seen wearing red silk. He is the most skilled swordsman of the merry men whilst Robin Hood is the most skilled with a bow and arrow and Little John with a quarterstaff. Scarlet uses two swords at the same time.


Robin finds a finely dressed young man shooting deer in Sherwood, and offers to let him join the band; they quarrel and fight. Robin asks who he is; he says he is Young Gamwell, who killed his father's steward and fled his father's estate to seek out his uncle, Robin Hood. Robin makes him welcome and renames him Scarlett. He helps capture Richard at the Lee and when Robin lends that knight money to pay off his debts, he is one of the Merry Men who insists on giving him a horse and clothing appropriate to his station.

Robin has Little John and Will with him, and they meet three foresters, resulting in the usual fight and outwitting. In Robin Hood and the Curtal Friar, Will Scarlet tells Robin of the friar, resulting in their encounter. In Robin Hood and Guy of Gisbourne, Little John is captured coming to Will's rescue after two of their band had been killed and Will was fleeing. In Robin Hood and the Prince of Aragon, Robin, Little John, and Will Scarlet come to the king's rescue, fighting the prince of the title and two giants, and ending with Will marrying the princess.
