Knights were anything but noble (6/6)

List item

Though chivalrous values did exist and were observed in some shape or form by some knightly orders of the time, the reality of how most knights behaved is unfortunately something far closer to Game of Thrones. Back in Medieval England, knights were landowners, soldiers and often exempt from the law in many cases. During peacetime, there were many reported cases of knights and their underlings ransacking peasant hamlets, monasteries and convents, as well as engaging in general criminal behaviour that is too gruesome to even be named here.
