In English folklore, Herne the Hunter is a ghost associated with Windsor Forest and Great Park in the English county of Berkshire. The original source for many of the tales told of Herne remains unknown. Herne the Hunter was mentioned by William Shakespeare who described him as "a spirit" and "sometime a keeper… in Windsor forest" who is seen to "walk round about an oak, with great ragg’d horns" at midnight during winter-time. This figurine sees Herne seated on the stump of an oak tree, Herne's Oak is said to be a little to the north of Frogmore House in the Home Park (adjoining Windsor Great Park). This tree was felled in 1796. In 1838, Edward Jesse claimed that a different tree in the avenue was the real Herne's Oak, and this gained in popularity especially with Queen Victoria.
