Medieval Moment: Reynard the fox was a VERY popular figure in Medieval Europe and Britain. He almost always appears as a trickster (classic foxes) and in at least a few stories is paired with Chaunticleer the Rooster. Stories of Reynard in particular were satire, and he’s more often than not the hero in earlier French texts. Disney was clever to pair Robin Hood and Reynard, as you get a similar character in both the Reynard and Robin Hood stories fighting against tyranny and feudalism.https://www.larousse.fr/encyclopedie/oeuvre/Roman_de_Renart/140658
I’ve gotta say. I’m upset on her behalf.
