THE MEDIEVAL KNIGHT AND HIS ARMOUR One Knight on horseback was worth 80 men on foot. This made knights the military delete of the middle ages. They inspired our idea of chivalry courtesy and manners. Well armed they feuded, they went to war as vassals of their feudal lords, and risked their lives in tournaments to win fame and honor. Every knight needed one set of armour for tournament and one for warfare. Each cost a fortune. Suits of armour had to be made to measure. There were over one hundred and fifty parts, such as gauntlets, breastplates, thigh plates, helmets, and from top to toe, each had to fit perfectly. Protecting oneself in battle has always been a concern for any soldier, and medieval knights were no exception. In fact, it was their protective armor that helped define them as a military unit and social class as armoring oneself during the Middle Ages was a great expense that only the wealthy could afford.
