Celtic Tree God Herne Statue Info
Herne the Hunter from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"In English folklore, Herne the Hunter is an equestrian ghost associated with Windsor Forest and Great Park in the English county of Berkshire. His appearance is notable in the fact that he has antlers upon his head.

"He is, in celtic mytholgy, a god and protecter of the forest, sometimes called the lord of the trees.

"The first literary mention of Herne is in William Shakespeare's play, The Merry Wives of Windsor, though there are several theories attempting to place the origins of Herne as predating any evidence for him by connecting his appearance to pagan deities or ancient archetypes.

"Herne has appeared in various other books, TV series and other media since his first mention by Shakespeare.

"The legend:
"Herne is said to have been a huntsman in the employ of King Richard II (reigned 1377-1399) in and around Windsor Forest. He saved the King's life when he was attacked by a cornered white hart, but was mortally wounded himself in the process.

"A local wizard brought him back to health using his magical powers, which entailed tying the dead animal's antlers on Herne's head. In return, however, Herne had to give up his hunting skills. The king's other huntsmen framed him as a thief. As a result he lost the favour of the king.

"He was found the next day, hanging dead from a lone oak tree. That same oak tree is in the Home Park at Windsor Castle."
