Edward "Ned" Kelly (June 1854 or 1855 – 11 November 1880)
He was born in Victoria to an Irish convict, and as a young man, he clashed with the Police. Following an altercation near his home in 1878, police instigated a manhunt. After he allegedly killed three policemen, the colony proclaimed Kelly and his gang were wanted men - Dead or Alive! Kelly and his gang began robbing banks in small country towns to survive. Soon the bounty was increased to a massive 8,000 pounds, the largest reward that had ever been offered in the British Empire. Throughout his time as an outlaw, Kelly had become a people's champion. He was considered the modern-day Robin Hood, and his popularity was such that he thought no one would betray him - he was wrong. The final showdown took place at Glenrowan when an attempt to rob a train on 28 June 1880 went terribly wrong. Ned was dressed in his famous home-made plate metal amour and the iconic post box helmet. Ned was captured and sent to jail. He was convicted of three counts of capital murder and hanged at Old Melbourne Gaol in November 1880.
