In the filmEdit

In the film, Nottingham is revealed to be the next destination of Prince John, who has usurped the throne in his brother's absence. Though Nottingham is described as a rich village by Prince John, the prince's enormous taxes force the townspeople into poverty. It later serves as the location of Prince John's archery tournament, which Robin Hood attends in disguise. Near the end of the film, the town is mostly empty, due to the townspeople being locked up for tax delinquency. However, King Richard returns to the town, and is able to set everything right, making Nottingham the prosperous town it once was.
