By Sharon Fabian

1     Knights lived by a code of honor called chivalry. The rules of chivalry dictated how a knight should live, and they spelled out the character traits of a good knight. Since knights were warriors, there were rules for war, but there were also rules of chivalry for many other occasions. There were even rules for romance!
2     Chivalry developed gradually throughout the Middle Ages. It grew out of several things that were happening in those years -- feudalism, the Crusades, and even the songs and stories of troubadours.
3     Under the feudal system, knights served their lords. That is why loyalty became one of the most important qualities of the medieval knight.
