I was raised by the woman of my house until I was 7.
i was born into the family of a knight which ment i would soon also become one.
first days at training
so far i have learnt : how to serve at the dinner table, run errands and perform menial cleaning tasks.
beginning life as a knight
when i turned 7 years old I was sent to the household of the local lord, along with other aspirants, to learn how to be a knight and live within the knightly brotherhood.
once I became a teenager, I gained the status of squire. As a squire, served his lord at dinner, take care of his horse and riding equipment, and manage his lord’s equipment at tournaments and battles. My combat training commenced in earnest.
As a squire i learned to ride, fight with knightly weapons, . I was well trained in the arts of defence. I also exercised so that I could fight i chain mail (weighing up to 50 lbs).
the prime of knighthood
The life of a medieval knight during times of peace was far from boring!
Growing up at the court of a lord ensured that i developed all of the finer skills required at court, like the proper way to carve meat. I also learned to hunt, participate in banquets, and dance. Courtly culture, from its literature and ceremony to its clothing and music, became an integral part of the life of my life as a medieval knight.
After an entire childhood dedicated to acquiring the skills of knighthood, i was finally knighted when i reached my late teens and early twenties.
. Besides aiding the court of a lord as discussed above and administering his own lands if he had them, there were numerous diversions to distract the knight. Activities and pastimes ranged from hunts and great banquets to the all-important tournaments
