The code of chivalry

One of many, many variations of the Medieval Knights Code Of Chivalry. No one region, kingdom or country had a unified code, although they did share various aspects between them. The "Rule" of the Knights Templar had 76 parts. who says chivalry is dead?

One of the greatest figures in the promotion of the chivalric ideal was Eleanor of Aquitaine. Eleanor’s interest in the poetry of courtly love and its ideals was shared by her daughters. To encourage the development of chivalry and courtly love, Eleanor became a patroness of the bourgeoning art of courtly love, and she offered financial support to troubadours who visited her court and celebrated these ideals.

Henry Plantagenet, King Henry II of England, second husband of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen Consort of France, and then of England, as well as being Duchess of Aquitaine and immensely powerful in her own right.
