The Medieval Knights This is a slideshow of your average medieval knight.

Life in a Medieval Castle Life in a Medieval Castle began at sunrise, when one of the guards trumpeted the day's start. Although some may think that if you were the ruler of the castle you had an easy life but a day in the castle was long and hard.

Knight's Daily Routine

How One Could Become a Knight A knight’s training began at age 7 serving under the title ‘page’. When he was 14 he became a ‘squire’, learning how to use a lance and wear armor. The squire served as an assistant to the knight. When he came of age at 21, he was dubbed a knight.

The Ceremony of a Knight The ceremony of a knight started with a nightlong vigil in the castle chapel, then a ritual bath at dawn, mass and breakfast with friends and family, and clothing in white vesture. The dubbing was a gentle blow on the neck or shoulder with the flat of a sword. Knights could also be created on a battle field with no ceremony.
