Unicorns in History

When you think of a unicorn, you most likely think of the white majestic horse with a large white horn. This type of unicorn has been popularized by pop culture, history, and most recently Dungeons and Dragons.

And while a large white horse with a horn sticking out of the top of its head isn’t real (at least to the best of our knowledge), the history of the unicorn is quite interesting. Some of the earliest mentions of unicorns were misrepresentations of the common Rhino. Then later the story evolved when sailors found Narwhal horns off the coast.
