Historical Background[edit]

In Medieval folklore, the Unicorn was a horse-like creature, usually white, with a single horn emerging from its horehead, the beard of a billy-goat, cloven hooves, and a lion's tail. It is a solitary wild animal which often roams in forests or mountain meadows. It is said only a maiden can tame, can charm this wild beast. According to stories, hunters trying to poach its horn would use a virgin to set a trap for it. There were reports of Unicorns as regular animals in India in Greek times. Another variety of the Unicorn was the Alicorn, a Unicorn with a spiraled horn. Both Unicorn and Alicorn horns, when ground up and placed into a brew, are said to be able to neutralize any poison. The Chinese Qilin (Japanese Kirin) is said to resemble the Unicorn.
