Storyline

Knighthood was far from fairytale-idyllic. Its origin was the need, against invading nomads and Muslims, for mounted warriors wearing ever more expensive armor and weapons, requiring fiefs. Especially when out of legitimate work, many turned into terrible raiders. Charles the Bold died in the turn of the military arms-race against them, in favor of mercenaries and artillery. They played a key part in the crusades and formed religious orders, whose wealth and power roused fatal royal envy in the Templars' case. They embodied romantic chivalry, also an eastern crusader import. Written by KGF Vissers
