Now I am curious, are Lancelot and Robin Hood from the same kingdom?
From a quasi-historical perspective, Lancelot was a contemporary of King Arthur, putting him in 5th/6th century and written about in the 12th/13th century. Robin Hood was supposed to be around in the 15th century. From a fantasy perspective, I suppose it's possible, but they're almost a millennia apart historically.
While most versions Robin Hood are set during the reign of Richard the Lion Heart, there are some that place him in a different historical setting. Parke Goodwin's Sherwood has Robin fighting against William the Conqueror.
