Another fun fact. Yes, unicorns were actually a real animal. It's scientifical name is "Elasmotherium sibiricum" and it's a type of an ice age rhino. It is not known when it went extinct, there is even a script from an arabian explorer from 921AD that mention it being still alive. Even if you don't believe that, there is no doubt people met it and passed stories and legends about it for generations. And they were also finding it's bones and horns and using them as medicine all throught the Middle ages. The "horse with a narwhal tusk" misconception only came to be in 1558 in a book "Historia animalium" from Conrad Gessner.
