Chivalry In The Medieval Times

Knights had a code of conduct that was called chivalry. This code changed over time but some of the major points were that the knight was bound to defend his lord or liege as well as to care for his land and people. In later centuries this code of chivalry was expanded to include conduct in courts and public functions. A knight was expected to protect those of less or lesser rank than himself and to hold himself to the highest standards of combat and knowledge in religion, writing, music and leadership.

Chivalry In The Modern Times

The days of marauding enemies or fighting ferocious beast are things of the past and the days of men universally being both citizens and soldiers have passed. Yet, while men are no longer called upon to protect their kings/ kingdoms; they still take on the duty to protect their families from both physical and emotional attacks.
