The Code of Chivalry

Knights Code of Chivalry

Basis of Code and Life as a Knight

The Code of Chivalry was the basis or guidelines for the ideal knight. All knights didn't go by these guidelines, but these were what they wanted to be. The nights looked up to King Arthur although he was never considered a true king. Something that was always expressed in the Kights code was that one must fight bravely for his feudal lord.

The way of life of the Knight following the Code of Chivalry was very strict. To be a knight took a lot of hard work and disipline. Although like I said earlier, the knights always dont follow these codes exactly, they always strived to. When in battle the knight must fight his hardest in every fight and not let down his feudal Lord.
