FEUDALISM: WHAT EVEN IS IT?!?!
CODE OF CHIVALRY
the traditional code of conduct associated with the medieval institution of knighthood. Chivalry arose from an idealized German custom. It was originally conceived of as an aristocratic warrior code — the term derives from the French term for horseman — involving honor, gallantry, and individual training and service to others. Over time its meaning has been refined to emphasize more ideals such as knightly virtues, honor, courtly love courtesy and less martial aspects of the tradition.
