Main description:

A magisterial history of the origins, reality, and legend of the knight

Born out of the chaos of the early Middle Ages, the armored and highly mobile knight revolutionized warfare and quickly became a mythic figure in history. From the Knights Templars and English knighthood to the crusades and chivalry, The Knight in History, by acclaimed medievalist Frances Gies, bestselling coauthor of Life in a Medieval Castle, paints a remarkable true picture of knighthood—exploring the knight’s earliest appearance as an agent of lawless violence, his reemergence as a dynamic social entity, his eventual disappearance from the European stage, and his transformation into Western culture’s most iconic hero.

Review quote:

“A carefully researched, concise, readable, and entertaining account of an institution that remains a part of the Western imagination.”

Review quote:

“Gies’s writing is fresh and direct, her scholarship is exact, and she approaches her subject with excitement.”

Review quote:

“Illuminates the evolution of knighthood”

Review quote:

“Splendid … This detailed look, focusing as it often does on individual men, shows the knight in a new and more interesting light, whether Roland or Galahad.”
