Herne the Hunter

The antlered giant Herne is the leader of the Wild Hunt, a ghostly rabble seen to gallop across Windsor Great Park at times of national calamity, lit by the full moon.

Herne the Hunter is associated with the Celtic horned god Cernunnos, the Lord of Beasts. His emblem is the oak tree, and in Windsor Great Park there is an ancient tree which bears the name 'Herne's Oak'.

It has also been suggested that Herne might be the spiritual precursor of Robin Hood.
