From their origins of Roman knights through to the battlefield heros of the Tudor age, here is an exciting and vibrant history of this fascinating subject.

This lavishly illustrated Pitkin Guide covers the origins and customs of knighthood in the Middle Ages to the evolution of the armoured knight as a battlefield weapon. Through examples of battles in which they fought, the guide explores how knights did fight, and their evolution from battlefield soldier through the post-1700s orders of knighthood. Discover the origins of the legacy which gives modern recipients the public honour of knighthood.

With the inclusion of a list of important dates up until the 17th century, this guide provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to te world of knights and chivalry for students of history or those with an interest in romantic tradition.
