Chivalry...a thing of the past?

|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.
