The King and the Miller of Mansfield, a medieval ballad, tells the story of a miller who gives a bed for the night to a stranger travelling to Nottingham. Over dinner, the miller tells the stranger they’re eating one of King Henry II’s deer, poached from Sherwood Forest. The following day, the miller discovers the stranger is the king himself.
