Responsibilities of the knights

By: Shayla Kellogg

One of the responsibilities that the middle aged knights had was that they had to learn how to fight. They also had to be loyal to their church and their lord. They were expected to be kind to the women. The knights also had to perform acts in the gallantry from the idea of chivalry as a tradition of kindness to women.

Another responsibility that the middle aged knights had is doing Joust and tournaments cause they were a big part of the knights life. Joust are a sport, exercise, or a serious battle. A tournament is a team of knights doing a one-on-one battle. There armor improves every couple centuries, and by the 17th century we started using more of gunpowder and canons so the knights who did one-on-one did not do much of the job.
