- from Knights & Castles
“I dub you knight.” When a young man heard these words and felt a sword tap his neck, he knew his years of training were over, and he was now a knight.
Not every boy could become a knight. A knight’s family had to be rich enough to buy the armor, weapons, and warhorse needed for this work. For this reason, knights came from the highest classes of society. They were sons of nobles, and the honor of being a knight passed from one knight to his sons.
