Chivalry in Medieval England

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Nov 29, 2011 - History - 440 pages
Popular views of medieval chivalry—knights in shining armor, fair ladies, banners fluttering from battlements—were inherited from the nineteenth-century Romantics. This is the first book to explore chivalry’s place within a wider history of medieval England, from the Norman Conquest to the aftermath of Henry VII’s triumph in the Wars of the Roses.
