Chivalry...a thing of the past?

TresayreTresayre on 12/07/2008

Chivalryathingofthepast Photo Medieval Chivalry was mostly concerned with with soldiers, 'knights' on horseback. The 'Orders of Chivalry' began in the late 14th century, but were not really cemented until the middle of the 15th century. These were necessary as very few noblemen were taking up knighthood, but the Chivalric Orders made it much more appealing. Chivalry was about justice, mercy, loyalty, courage, honesty and more.
Today however, chivalry is used to describe good manners and behaviour particularly in relation to men's attitudes and dealings with women. It can go beyond that to leadership, truthfulness and fair play.
This quiz scrapes the surface on the subject of chivalry. Enjoy!

I enjoyed your quiz, but I think the answer to question #2 is problematic -- the question refers to the founding of military orders (not a particular order), and asks what a group of knights who did this kind of thing was called. The Templars were a particular order, but knights in general who fought and founded military religious orders were Crusaders.
