How to Become a Knight
AAA small boy in training to become a knight spends his first years of his life with a woman of his family. During that time, he has to learn how to ride a pony and care for a horse.
Here is your first challenge to become a knight!
WWhen the boy reaches the age of 7, he leaves his home to begin knighthood. While he is a page, he lives with his father's lord or some great noble, bishop, or king. He has to learn how to handle the weapons he will use as a knight. He practices with the real thing,just smaller. He also learns the code of courtesy or chivalry and what behavior is expected of a knight.
Now that you're here, you should explore the castle!
A boy begins training as a squire at 15 or 16. He has a knight as a master. He acts as a valet, or a personal servant to that knight. He sets the table and has to just stand behind his master at mealtimes. The squire is also responsible for keeping the knight's armor oiled and in good condition. The Squire receives serious training learning to battle on horseback. He rides with his master into battles, carries any extra weapons, and helps him in many other ways, too. In battles, the squire wears silvered spurs to tell him apart from the knight, whose spurs were gilt or gold-plated. He acts as a squire to a knight for about five years. Then the squire is eligible for knighthood.
Here is your next challenge!!!
That was a very good shot! We didn't think you would make it this far. Now you can rest and read our very funny jokes.
A knight could make another person a knight. Sometimes squires could be knighted on the field, but mostly it was at peaceful times. The first parts of the ceremonies were very simple. The knight had to wear the armor of the squire who was going to be knighted. The next ceremonies became a little harder. One man buckled the sword and another fastened the spurs. The squire kneeled before parrain, or the man who knighted him. The man hit him on the neck with his hand. Next he tapped him once again with a sword. The last words he heard was "I dub you knight." Before the squire was knighted, he placed his armor on the altar of the church. He told about anything he had done bad and prayed, he had to keep a vigil throughout the night. The next day he took a bath and put special clothes on. The pageants made the ceremonies costed a lot of money. Different kings were taking money from people by taxing them so they can get money for the squire to become a knight.
Now that you're a knight, you'll have to fight your first dragon. Better get to know about them!
NOW THAT YOU'RE A KNIGHT
Well, you're not quite done yet! You still have to prove yourself to your king. You must attack a neighboring castle.
Here's where the code of courtesy or chivalry comes in. It means to be truthful or honorable at all times. If you feel that you have earned the title of SIR KNIGHT, follow the swords. If not, go back to the beginning and try again.
