The latest civil war in England has come and gone, King John is dead, and the nobility of England gathers to see the coronation of his son, thirteen year old King Henry III.
The new king is at the center of political rivalries and power struggles, but John of Locksley — son of the legendary Robin Hood and Lady Marian — only sees a lonely boy in need of friends. John and his sisters, Mary and Eleanor, succeed in befriending Henry, while also inadvertently uncovering a political plot, saving a man's life, and carrying out daring escapes.
