Summary

This evocative book examines the historical brotherhood of knights, how they were governed by their feudal lord, and the ideal of the chivalric code. Knights drew inspiration from portrayals of knighthood in the literature of chivalry - in heroic chansons de geste, poems of courtly love and prose, and verse of romances that told of knights' great deeds in war and love. Together, the chivalric code and the art of the time embodied a vision of how knights should and could behave. From the knightly heroes of the Bible and the classical worlds to the golden age of medieval chivalry and the enduring tales of King Arthur, there is also a discussion of how the knights of history lived up to these ideals, and themselves became legendary figures.
