  • Hello. I am a noble woman.
  • Hi! I am a peasant woman!
  • As a Knight I have to fight for my lord who in turn fought for their king. A tournament is a battle between two groups of mounted knights. is evidenced in the early use of exactly the same weapons and armour that were used for battlefield. When I won the tournament honour and glory were strong motivators there was and the prospect of financial gain. i gained a cash prize for being the winning team at the end of the day's battle. The Knights aimed to steal weapons in my tournament, armour and anything else valuable that their opponent was carrying or even to capture them and demand a ransom which could be decided upon before the start in the tournament. Although over time the tournaments became more sophisticated including real life war strategies and more having many dangers. This prepared me for war. Tournaments then, became the best opportunity for knights to publicly display those qualities any good knight may possess, martial prowess, courtesy, good breeding, noble manners and generosity. My plan is to go to war for the King so I can earn land and more money so my family can live comfortably.
