The Short And Bloody History Of Knights

John Farman

The Short And Bloody History Of Knights - Jacket

About the book

Generally regarded as a gentlemanly profession, after extensive research John Farman has discovered the terrible truth about the life of your average Knight. To start with there's the uniform. A suit of armour not only cost the earth in medieval times but it probably weighed more than a small planet when you put it on. Best not to mention the chain-mail underwear that was considered the height of fashion at the time. There was danger involved in everything a Knight was asked to do. Saving maidens was no mean feat (sometimes they didn't want to be saved!) and jousting might have made a nice day out for all those bored princesses and peasants but lances were pretty lethal, especially if you can't see where you're going in your visor. And I haven't even begun to tell you the real truth about dragons
