The Unicorn is a creature with origins in Greek and Roman mythology, legend and folklore. Accounts of its existence would later gain connections to Medieval European mythology, legend and folklore.
A Unicorn is often described as a horse with a single horn spiraling out of its forehead. While it has been depicted with white fur in medieval paintings, a unicorn can have different fur colors depending on its breed.
