Those who view war/violence as a solution to their problems will likely die a violent death
This proverb traces to the play The Death of Robert, Earl of Huntington
by English dramatist Anthony Munday (1601).
Robert, Earl of Huntington is one of a number of people who historians think may
have been the basis for the legendary character of Robin Hood. The
evidence for the Earl of Huntington being "Robin Hood" traces to references by
the likes of Anthony Munday and to Thomas
Gale (1697-1702) who left in his papers words that were supposed to have been
from the grave of Robin Hood, and recorded his death as being in 1247.
Hear undernead this (dis) laitl stean/Lais Robert Earl of
Huntington (Huntingtun)/Nea arcir ver as hie sae geud/An pipl kauld im Robin
Heud/Sick utlaws as hi an is men/vil England nivr si agen.
(Here underneath this little stone/Lies Robert Earl of Huntington/No archer was
as he so good/And people called him Robin Hood/Such outlaws as he and his
men/Will England never see again).
similar epitaph is published at the end of The True Tale of Robin Hood by
Martin Parker (1632), which gives the date of death as 1198 (at the end of the
reign of King Richard "The Lionheart")
Robert Earle of Huntington/Lies under this little
stone./No archer was like him so good;/His wildnesse named him Robbin Hood./Full
thirteene yeares, and something more,/These northerne parts he vexed sore./Such
out-lawes as he and his men/May England never know agen.
