NWC: Chivalry


Recommended Posts

These are from the Song of Roland.  They are what some consider the basics of chivalry (I've removed some of them that don't really apply here).

  • To serve the liege lord in valour and faith
  • To protect the weak and defenceless
  • To give succour to widows and orphans
  • To refrain from the wanton giving of offence
  • To live by honour and for glory
  • To despise pecuniary reward (i.e. bribe)
  • To fight for the welfare of all
  • To obey those placed in authority
  • To guard the honour of fellow knights
  • To eschew unfairness, meanness and deceit
  • To keep faith
  • At all times to speak the truth
  • To persevere to the end in any enterprise begun (i.e. not give up)
  • Never to refuse a challenge from an equal
  • Never to turn the back upon a foe (i.e. run away)

I'm posting these because they inspire me.
