Transcript of Medieval Knights

Medieval Knights Who are they? Knights were a kind of proffessional soldier in the Medieval Ages. They were members of the vassal class, and often fought on horseback. There were three stages to becoming
knight: page, squire, and knight. What did they do? A knight's primary job was to fight. He provided military service to the king, and recieved land in return. On this land, he would train with his men, so they could become even better fighters. The land a knight owned was called a manor. He was in charge of this land, and was responsible to protect the peasants who lived on it. In return, the peasants gave him portions of their produce. When did this happen? The modern idea of a knight began in the 800s, and ended with the introduction of guns in the 1600s. Where did this happen? Knights existed everywhere in Europe in the Middle Ages, as each country had its own knights. Why is it significant? Knights were elite warriors that intoduced chivalry and fought to make their country more powerful. They influenced the Feudal System by making it possible for peasants to become knights, and therefore members of the vassal class. How did it affect Medieval Society? Knights popularized chivalry, and inspired faith, loyalty, courage, and honour. By making chivalry common practice, knights improved the quality of life for women, who were to be honoured.
