The unicorn is a legendary creature that has been written about and referenced as far back as 8 BC. A horse-like beast with a single horn projecting from its forehead.
In European folklore, the Unicorn was often described as a horse or goat-like creature, with a single long twisted horn, cloven hooves and sometimes with a beard. It was often described as the symbol of purity and grace and could only be caught by a virgin. Its horn was said to have magical powers with the ability to make poison or non-potable water safe for drinking.
