Rummu Jüri in 1880.

Rummu Jüri (Jüri Rummo; 2 August [O.S. 21 July] 1856 in Kehtna Parish – unknown) was an Estonian itinerant, thief and robber. He has become the archetypical Estonian folk hero, an outlaw who stole from the rich to give to the poor. Although most noted for his material egalitarianism, in the stories he also pursues other types of equality and justice.
