Becoming a knight
If chosen to be a knight, the young boy would start out as a page. But, at the age of six, the young knight would not be a page just yet. At the age of seven, the boy would go to a relative or friends castle to learn how to become a page. If the page was good, after a couple of years, he would become a squire. Though, to become a squire, the young king would at least have to be thirteen.
Then, later, when they have become a knight, the castle has a big
celebration. Before the man becomes knight, the worthy king taps the knight on the shoulder with the new man’s sword. That is when the knight would be able to go into battle.
Knights would ride out to battle on horses to attack other castles during medieval times. They made headlong charges to the battle, and made sieges on other castles. Knights also defended their own castles to protect it. But the knights in shining armor weren’t always made of sieges. They had to pass hours and hours of practice, practice, practice. It nearly took them the whole day to do. The knight had an apprentice that was a squire for seven years. The knight would also be an apprentice for seven years until he became a knight. That is when they get their own apprentice to help them put on their armor.
