2nd Answer, on knights in history:Part of the problem with historic knights was that if they were famous, they usually had other titles, and so they are not remembered primarily as knights. Another was that the fictional knights are the subjects of fiction people like to remember, but historic knights seem oddly less real. Nevertheless here are a few:
  • Roland, the character of the Song of Roland, who was real
  • Sir William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke
  • Sir William Douglas, who fought for Scottish independence
  • Sir William Wallace, also a Scottish patriot
  • King Richard I of England, who was knighted by King Louis VII of France
  • Sir Thomas Mallory, remembered for writing Le Morte d'Arthur.
  • Jean II Le Maingre, marshall of France during the Hundred Years' War
  • Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, Spanish knight remembered as El Cid
  • Hugues de Payens, a founder of the Knights Templar
  • Jacques de Molay, last Grand Master of the Knights Templar
