It's stated that Maid Marian is King Richard 's niece, but it's never actually revealed how they're related and she doesn't really appear to be related to Prince John , despite him being Richard's brother. Because of that, it can be assumed that Richard is Maid Marian's uncle by marriage — meaning that the sister of either Marian's mother or father was the wife of King Richard making Marian's aunt the queen —. She and Robin Hood have known each other since they were young children and fell in love as they got older. However, several years before the events of the film, she left for London for unspecified reasons and had only recently returned to Nottingham.
