A knights job is to protects it's people ANSWER: A knight's job was to protect the interests of the Lord or Ruler he worked for, by any means necessary. Many knights used their power over the serfs and vassals to their own benefit, and many were very cruel and power-hungry. Things eventually got… so bad that the Pope created a "Crusade" for them to go on to keep them busy and give them something to do other than tormenting the common people. (MORE)
Becoming a Knight: There were only a few ways in which a person could become a knight. The first way was the normal course of action for the son of a noble: When a boy was eight years old, he was sent to the neighboring castle where he was trained as a page. The boy was usually the son of a knight …or of a member of the aristocracy. He spent most of his time strengthening his body, wrestling and riding horses. He also learned how to fight with a spear and a sword. He practiced against a wooden dummie called a quintain. It was essentially a heavy sack or dummie in the form of a human. It was hung on a wooden pole along with a shield. The young page had to hit the shield in its center. When hit, the whole structure would spin around and around. The page had to maneuver away quickly without getting hit. The young man was also taught more civilized topics. He would be taught to read and write by a schoolmaster. He could also be taught some Latin and French. The lady of the castle taught the page to sing and dance and how to behave in the king's court. At the age of fifteen or sixteen, a boy became a squire in service to a knight. His duties included dressing the knight in the morning, serving all of the knight's meals, caring for the knight's horse, and cleaning the knight's armor and weapons. He followed the knight to tournaments and assisted his lord on the battlefield. A squire also prepared himself by learning how to handle a sword and lance while wearing forty pounds of armor and riding a horse. When he was about twenty, a squire could become a knight after proving himself worthy. A lord would agree to knight him in a dubbing ceremony. The night before the ceremony, the squire would dress in a white tunic and red robes. He would then fast and pray all night for the purification of his soul. The chaplain would bless the future knight's sword and then lay it on the chapel or church's altar. Before dawn, he took a bath to show that he was pure, and he dressed in his best clothes. When dawn came, the priest would hear the young man's confession, a Catholic contrition rite. The squire would then eat breakfast. Soon the dubbing ceremony began. The outdoor ceremony took place in front of family, friends, and nobility. The squire knelt in front of the lord, who tapped the squire lightly on each shoulder with his sword and proclaimed him a knight. This was symbolic of what occurred in earlier times. In the earlier middle ages, the person doing the dubbing would actually hit the squire forcefully, knocking him over. After the dubbing, a great feast followed with music and dancing. A young man could also become a knight for valor in combat after a battle or sometimes before a battle to help him gain courage. but other wise is really boring lolz (i am really joking!!) (MORE)

A helping of food or drinking. We normally translate servings as a portion for food and as a dose for drinking.
There were different ways to become a knight. In some cases, a person of high enough standing could join an order of knights much the same way people today might join fraternal organizations. One order I know of that did not require special military training was the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mar…y. Another was to join an order that required training, such as the Knights Templar, go through that training, take the appropriate vows, and become a knight. A person could become a knight without being in an order by undergoing training with a knight as an apprentice, first as a page, then as a squire, and being knighted by a king. This might have been the most common way a person became a knight. It seems to be the one way most remembered today. Anyone could be knighted by a king, or in some places by certain other members of the nobility, at any time for any reason. This was something that happened to reward valor, but also could reward other things. There is a story about a certain cook being knighted Sir Loin, because he cooked a loin of beef particularly well, hence the name of the cut of meat. (MORE)

Most people think that knights were just men who rode on horses all day, but that is incorrect. The medievil knights can be compared to todays modern tank.

It was expensive to be a knight, all their armor shields and weapons cost a lot of money. The knights horse could be compared in price to buying a small plane today. (MORE)
The knight was one of three types of fighting men during the middle ages: Knights, Foot Soldiers, and Archers. The medieval knight was the equivalent of the modern tank. He was covered in multiple layers of armor, and could plow through foot soldiers standing in his way. No single foot soldier or ar…cher could stand up to any one knight. Knights were also generally the wealthiest of the three types of soldiers. This was for a good reason. It was terribly expensive to be a knight. The war horse alone could cost the equivalent of a small airplane. Armor, shields, and weapons were also very expensive. Becoming a knight was part of the feudal agreement. In return for military service, the knight received a fief. In the late middle ages, many prospective knights began to pay "shield money" to their lord so that they wouldn't have to serve in the king's army. The money was then used to create a professional army that was paid and supported by the king. These knights often fought more for pillaging than for army wages. When they captured a city, they were allowed to ransack it, stealing goods and valuables. 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. They were also expected to not "talk too much". In other words, they shouldn't boast. The code of chivalry demanded that a knight give mercy to a vanquished enemy. However, the very fact that knights were trained as men of war belied this code. Even though they came from rich families, many knights were not their families' firstborn. They did not receive an inheritance. Thus they were little more than mercenaries. They plundered villages or cities that they captured, often defiling and destroying churches and other property. Also the code of chivalry did not extend to the peasants. The "weak" was widely interpreted as "noble women and children". They were often brutal to common folk. They could sometimes even rape young peasant women without fear of reprisal, all because they were part of the upper class.. Life of a Knight . Training for knighthood during medieval times usually began at an early age. Often the prospective knight was sent to live with a relative or lord who had the resources to train the young boy in use of weapons and, most importantly, the skills to handle a horse in combat. A knight-in-training would often serve as a squire (assistant) for an established knight, attending his needs, helping him don his armor, and making ready his horse and weapons.. Once his training was completed and he reached "fighting age" (usually around 16-20 years old), he would ceremoniously become a full-fledged knight. The ceremony became more elaborate as the Middle Ages progressed, until only the richest nobles or a king could afford to "knight" someone.. The new knight now served his liege lord (which may or may not be the king himself), bound to offer military service up to 40 days a year in peace time, more, as needed, in war time. Military duties included castle guard, serving in the lord's "bodyguard", and participating in battle.. Apart from military duties the knight could also participate in administering justice (as part of assizes--a medieval form of our modern juries), manage his estates (which was his prime source of income), and continue to hone his combat skills in tournament.. Alnwick Castle, Northumberland, England . The tournament in the early Middle Ages (ca. 800-1200 C.E.) was often a meleÃ©, resembling actual combat in groups that could result in injuries or even death. Men were taken hostage and held for ransom, horses and armor confiscated by the captors. As kings and churchmen grew concerned over this senseless loss of life and resources new regulations and safety measures were put into effect. The meleÃ© was replaced by individual combat events (among them the joust), and new innovations in armor specifically designed for the tournament made it somewhat safer. (MORE)
A knight is a lifelong title, pretty much like "general" or "captain". It was/is a military type title, and those who were knighted were considered to be important to the defense of the country. Today those who are knighted are made knights because of their outstanding service to their country.

Knights were nobles and they were nobles because a king gave them land and power. So, they had to be loyal to this person or they would loose power, land, and titles. In some cases also their life. ----- In theory, knights were supposed to be loyal to whoever knighted them, usually a king, but s…ometimes some other member of high nobility, depending on local custom. The loyalty also passed to the heir of that person. The problem with this is that as the Middle Ages continued, it became more and more common for knights not to be given their own estates to support them, and knights had to depend more and more on pay. Also, wars produced numbers of knights who had been deprived of their estates. So as time went on, mercenary knights became more and more common. These people were supposed to be loyal to whoever hired them, and oaths were often required for this, but the oaths were based on periods of time or the duration of a conflict. (MORE)
