I have my question regarding an Irish-Australian bushranger, whose name was Edward Ned Kelly. I would like to know that as he is said to have stolen something so I would like to know that what that thing actually was that he stole?

     Edward Ned Kelly was an Irish- Australian bushranger who was born in June 1855, to an Irish convict father. He was considered by some merely a cold-blooded killer, while by others a folk hero and symbol of Irish-Australian resistance against oppression by the British ruling class for his defiance of the colonial authorities. As a young man he clashed with the Victoria Police, as he killed three policemen, the colony proclaimed Kelly and his gang wanted outlaws. When it was declared that he was to be hung, 60,000 people signed a petition asking that he be spared. He was eventually hung at the Old Melbourne Jail on 11 November, 1880. Today we can still see a life size mask made immediately after his death. It is on display along with other Ned Kelly paraphernalia. He is remembered today in the popular expression, 'as game as Ned Kelly'. As a criminal he would have gone on to steal so many things in his life. Following his execution Kelly's body was dissected, with his head and organs removed for study. In line with the practice of the day, as no records are kept regarding the disposal of a condemned person's body or body parts, Kelly's remains may, or may not have, been buried in Melbourne Gaol's mass graveyard.
