The unicorn is one of the most popular legendary creatures, appearing in myths from several different cultures since antiquity. They were featured in Greek accounts of natural history, countless European folktales, and even appear in Biblical texts. Usually depicted as wild and free, legends state that they can only be tamed by gentle maidens. Although there is no concrete evidence indicating unicorns have ever existed, there have been many fabricated recreations throughout the centuries. It was rumored that the horn of the unicorn held magical properties, leading to powdered narwhal horn being sold as magical cures.
