When the Earl of Mackworth reveals his plot to Myles, he says the lands that should have belonged to him and his sister were given to the Earl of Alban. According to English law of the day, only sons could inherit, unless there were none living. Lord Mackworth would never suggest that Meg could inherit the family's estate during Myles' lifetime.

Looking back, it seems like they showed this movie every other Sunday afternoon (and I watched it everytime). It's of a time when knights were bold and their women were beautiful. And, a time when you settled your disputes on the 'field of honor'. Tony Curtis looks a bit awkward in the role of 'knight wannabe', but you soon suspend belief and accept him in the part.
The story unfolds in nicely presented vignettes (over the course of years), that are assembled effortlessly and almost seamlessly. Battles and glory await our hero (the girl awaits too). It's an entertaining journey to the climatic finish. Enjoy....
