A Medieval Knight

Front Cover
Lucent Books, 2005 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 112 pages
Few historical periods have captured the imagination more than the Middle Ages. And few images from that period are more emblematic than the "noble knight" charging in full armor astride his mighty warhorse while in times of peace riding throughout villages dispensing justice with great nobility. But to what degree is this Hollywood image a fair and accurate portrait of a knight's working life? Over the years much fantasy has prevailed in place of accuracy. This book returns to original medieval documents and respected contemporary historians in pursuit of the true story of the working life of the medieval knight.
