Why I Love Medieval Romance Novels – Part 5

Chivalry –

The notion of chivalry comes directly from the medieval ages.  Knights lived by a code and conducted themselves with superiority.  Not only were they strong and skilled, but they also conducted themselves honorably with bravery, courtesy and gallantry toward woman.  What a notion!  It’s so romantic to think of the strongest, bravest men bound to these ideals.  In my novel, A Knight of Honor, Slane Donovan is the perfect knight of honor, bound to a moral set of ethics and a code of honor that he believes in and strives to live his life by.  Chivalry is honorable and praiseworthy.  Perhaps that is why so many ballads have been written about the prowess of knights and their devotion to chivalry.
