Knight Chess Set

knight is a person who has received an honorary title of chivalry by a head of state (including the pope) or representative to serve the monarch, church or country, especially in a military capacity. Chivalry has its origins in the Greek hippeis and hoplites (ἱππεῖς) and the Roman knights and centurions of classical antiquity. At the beginning of the Middle Ages in Europe, chivalry was conferred on warriors on horseback [4]. In the High Middle Ages, chivalry was considered a lower nobility class. At the end of the Middle Ages, rank was associated with the ideals of chivalry, a code of conduct for the perfect Christian warrior of the court. Often times, a knight was a vassal who served as an elite fighter, bodyguard, or mercenary for a lord, with payment in the form of land holdings. The lords trusted the knights, who were skilled in combat on horseback. Cavalry in the Middle Ages was closely linked to horsemanship (and especially to jousting) from its origins in the 12th century until its definitive development as a fashion among the high nobility of the Duchy of Burgundy in the 15th century. This link is reflected in the etymology of cavalry, cavalier and allied terms. meaning, the special prestige accorded to warriors on horseback in Christianity finds a parallel in the furusiyya in the Islamic world.
