A true Knight is a person upon whom a certain non-hereditary dignity is conferred by a sovereign, because of services rendered to the country and the sovereign.
A Knight’s code of behavior was not fully defined until Christian ideals became a part of a Knight’s way of life.
A true Knight has faith and a deep love of the Christian religion. He defends the church and is ready to die for it. He loves the land of his birth and gives generously to all. His strength serves to protect and aid the feeble.
A true Knight champions right against injustice and evil and never surrenders or flinches in the face of the enemy.
