1. Life as a Knight.

A knight protects the manor (land) and the people on it!


A mounted soldier serving under a feudal superior in the Middle Ages.

A man, usually of noble birth, who after an apprenticeship as page and squire was raised to honorable military rank and bound to chivalrous conduct.


A knight was someone who protected the kings manor (land) and whoever lived on that manor. It was a duty of a knight to know how to fight to serve their liege Lord according to the Code of Chivalry.


Son's of the Medieval nobles were sent to live in the castle of their liege Lord and commence their education as a Knight and learn the skills required as a Medieval Knight.

In England we find the exception to this rule where the term "Knight" comes from the anglo-saxon word "cniht" which means household servant or retainer.

This makes me think of how hard it would have been a knight in Medieval times because, you'd have to protect the land all day and all knight. You would also have to wear those big, heavy, and probably uncomfortable outfits all day and everyday! Sounds pretty tough right?
