Early lifeEdit

Marion was born at Leaford, the daughter of Norman nobility. By the time she was seventeen, she believed her father, Sir Richard of Leaford, had died in the Crusades (her mother had died some time earlier), and had become the ward of Abbot Hugo.

Robin and MarionEdit

In the Spring of 1193 (or 1195), Marion was at Nottingham Castle, where Abbot Hugo had arranged for her to meet Baron Simon de Belleme, who wished to marry her. It was during this time that she first encountered Robin of Loxley, who had been imprisoned for poaching, and aided him in his escape from the castle.
