his estates. The king required the people of their courts to perform certain duties
as well as serve in the military. If they showed their loyalty to the king through these duties
they could gain more titles, lands, and good marriages for their children/family members.
If they didn't they could loose everything in a stroke of a pen. The nobility also had
the duty to make sure the people on their estates were protected and that the crops
were produced because a percentage went to the king and the church.

The knight was one of three types of fighting men during the middle ages:
Knights, Foot Soldiers, and Archers. Knights believed in the code of chivalry.
They promised to defend the weak, be courteous to all women, be loyal to their king,
and serve God at all times. Knights were expected to be humble before others,
especially their superiors. Knighthood was eventually merged into the nobility as a lower noble title.
