The word knight means 'mounted warrior'. By the 100s a code of chivalry had been developed by which knights were expected to live. A knight was expected to defend his Christian faith, to behave honourably towards his enemies and to protect the weak and poor.
This mini Knight measures 4cm tall and is made from lead-free pewter. It is supplied on a black pencil. The pencil has the Knights code of chivalry 'Defend the weak, be courteous to all women, be loyal to the king, and serve God at all times' printed on it.
