  • Tell us a tale of love
  • The Squire's Tale - Part I
  • A squire was a servant to knights in order to become a knight himself. A noble child was sent to a lord's house at the age of seven to serve as the knight’s page.The page was cared for by the women in the home. After seven years, at the age of fourteen, the boy moved on from being a page to being a squire. A squire is a servant to the knight and must help him with whatever task he is told. There, the boy learns from the knight about riding, war, hunting, and sports.
  • The Squire's Tale - Part II
  • As the company was travelling to Canterbury, the Host requested a love story from the Squire, assuming that he had experienced just as much as any other man there. The Squire confessed that he did not know much about love, but agreed to tell a tale as best as he could.
  • The Squire's Tale - Part III
  • NOPE.
  • The squire told a story about a noble king Tarter Cambuscan whose wife, Elpheta, and him had two sons, Algarsyf and Cambalo, and a daughter named Canace. Canace was very fair and beautiful. Each year the king would have a feast of his nativity. The feast the king held was rich and abundant. During this celebration, a knight came whilst riding upon a steed of brass with a mirror, a gold ring, and a sword. This knight was very noble and was clearly admired by those who surrounded him. As gifts, the knight gave his the brass horse to the king and the ring and mirror to Canace. Many people at the feast chatted about the magical gifts the knight had given.
  • Part I - Continued
  • The ring the knight gave to Canace gave her the ability to talk to animals and understand nature. After the knight gave out his gift he danced with Canance. When the dance was done it was time for everyone to go to their beds and sleep. The next day when Canace woke up, she decided to go on a walk. While she was on the walk she found an injured hawk. Canace used her magical ring to understand what had happened to the creature. The hawk told her that she had plucked herself nearly to death because of the bird she loved and that she would do anything for him. Canace, being a generous and compassionate person, decided to use her ring to help heal the hawk.
  • The Squire's story continued but the third part of the story seems to be unfinished or lost. "Apollo whirled his chariot up high till in the house of Mercury the sly-" (Unfinished by Chaucer)
