Course Description

Who was William Marshall ‘the greatest knight that ever lived’, and was Richard I really a ‘Lionheart’? What was Chivalry and how did Henry V break the rules? How did medieval knights train in Tournaments, did this change under the Tudors and Stuarts, and why did the Victorians hold a tournament in Scotland in 1839? This module examines contemporary literature, images and material to reconstruct the changing nature of knighthood, chivalry and tournaments, and its modern reinterpretations.
