|John of York|
|Behind the scenes|
John of York was a lovelorn young knight who appears in the episode "Show Me the Money", originally captured by Robin's gang when they surmised him to be a rich traveler. When they discovered he was actually quite poor and scrounging all his money to pay off the bond of Beatrice, his fiancee, they agreed to help him. After a bundle of complicated altercations with the sheriff (who is using Beatrice's bond to entrap Robin Hood) and the clergyman Canon of Birkley who owned Beatrice's bond, he and Robin finally managed to rescue her, and he and Beatrice were happily married by Robin at the end of the episode.
