Yes, Mom I'll be fine, this is my dream. I don't care that we are peasants, I am determined.
Now Fendrel you know becoming a knight is a big thing. Are you sure you are ready for this?
Meeting Lord Simon
Yes, Good Sir.
This is going to be awesome!
Hello Fendrel, I'm Lord Simon. You have been sent here to learn about being a knight. Am I right?
Come on again!
Fendral could you please bring me a glass of water.
Fendrel is now at the age of 7. He has been waiting all his life to become a knight. The only thing he was worried about is he was not in the upper classes, like Church Officials, Nobles and Kings in fact Fendrel's family are in the lower end of the Feudal Pyramid, as peasants.
Fendrel Has Become a Squire
Now that I am getting older, Lord Simon wants me to groom his horses.
I am here today to become, Knight Fendrel. I promise to be honest, faithful and never run from an enemy.
In the Middle Ages, during Medieval time period the knights in training were off to the lord. They were usually sent off to a manor or castle.
Aww, they grow up so fast :)
For 7 years the knights in training have to serve the adults and the ladies during that time. The often got them things, run messages, information, any thing they needed. In exchange the adults and ladies taught them games, and sometimes how to read and write.
Fendrel The Knight
Yes, this is what I am been waiting for all my life, and it is finally here. See you on the battle field.
At the age of 14, 7 years after they started the knight training, the kids become a squire. Now their job is to accompany the lord, meaning going for battles, hunting, fishing, and attending for the Lord's armor and horses.
This is the time that all knights in training are waiting for, the ceremony. They often have big ceremonies to finalize the official passing of being a knight. Knights in training usually give a speech at the end, telling the priest what they promise, and from there it is history.
In the end Fendral ends up passing the tests and becomes a extraordinary knight. His goal was to become the best knight ever, as a peasant, but in the end he ended up being a better knight then Prince Charlemagne.
