In this book, the history of the medieval knight and the gentleman's icon is explored, with more than 450 stunning images of castles, missions, battles, tournaments, courts and victories. It is a great description of the Knights of the Middle Ages, their origins, their status, their training, their military exploits and their romantic adventures.
It covers every aspect of the cavalry role in feudal Europe: their nobility, social status, strict training, equestrian, military exploitation, responsibilities and privileges. The most respected knights include Charlemagne, Richard the Lionheart, Edward the Black Prince and William Wallace, as well as the legendary Knights of King Arthur.
In the battle, the medieval knight was equivalent to the modern tank. The knight could have moved his way through the infantry, and in a huge mess in a narrow formation, the cavalry charge was devastating.
This book describes how the knighthood began, and the training that noble sons underwent to achieve the title of equestrian. There are features on King Arthur, medieval poetry, romantic tiles, Crusader stories, and folk tales of rogue and abominable cavalry.
The medieval knight's world was brought to life with more than 450 pictures showing castles, tasks, battles, and love, and the championships and victories of these legendary heroes.
