The story of one of the remaining Saxon noble families at a time when the nobility in England was overwhelmingly Norman.
Despite the fact that the outlaw appears in only ten out of forty- four chapters in the novel, Robin of Locksley is its hero. The character of Ivanhoe is a passive figure, and relatively ineffective in battle. For example, during the tournament at Ashby, he requires saving by the Black Knight, while during the siege of Torquilstone he is laid up in bed. Richard I, while a good and heroic King, is criticised in the novel for pursuing adventures abroad instead of staying and attending to the affairs of England. Out of all the supposed heroes in the novel, it is only Robin Hood, or Locksley, who steps up to become the saviour and deliverer of the nation Simeone, In Ivanhoe, a novel which was intended to have direct application to the Britain in the early nineteenth century, Scott deals with the theme of national unity: at the beginning of the novel, England is in a parlous state.

London: Malone Society Reprints, Malone Society Reprints, The royal policy had long been to weaken, by every means, legal or illegal, the strength of a part of the population which was justly considered as nourishing the most inveterate antipathy to their victor.
All the monarchs of the Norman race had shown the most marked predilection for their Norman subjects; the laws of the chase, and many others equally unknown to the milder and more free spirit of the Saxon constitution, had been fixed upon the necks of the subjugated inhabitants, to add weight, as it were, to the feudal chains with which they were loaded. At court, and in the castles of the great nobles, where the pomp and state of a court was emulated, Norman-French was the only language employed; in courts of law, the pleadings and judgments were delivered in the same tongue.
In short, French was the language of honour, of chivalry, and even of justice, while the far more manly and expressive Anglo-Saxon was abandoned to the use of rustics and hinds, who knew no other. Still, however, the necessary intercourse between the lords of the soil, and those oppressed inferior beings by whom that soil was cultivated, occasioned the gradual formation of a dialect, compounded betwixt the French and the Anglo-Saxon, in which they could render themselves mutually intelligible to each other; and from this necessity arose by degrees the structure of our present English language, in which the speech of the victors and the vanquished have been so happily blended together; and which has since been so richly improved by importations from the classical languages, and from those spoken by the southern nations of Europe.
This state of things I have thought it necessary to premise for the information of the general reader, who might be apt to forget, that, although no great historical events, such as war or insurrection, mark the existence of the Anglo-Saxons as a separate people subsequent to the reign of William the Second; yet the great national distinctions betwixt them and their conquerors, the recollection of what they had formerly been, and to what they were now reduced, continued down to the reign of Edward the Third, to keep open the wounds which the Conquest had inflicted, and to maintain a line of separation betwixt the descendants of the victor Normans and the vanquished Saxons.
