Knights belonged to the noble class and were part of a military order, but not all soldiers could become knights. Those lacking the equipment, status or wealth to join an order were usually denied. However, some from the poorer class could elevate their status and be accepted into knighthood through valor on the battlefield. While Orders of female knights were rare, they did exist.
The Knight's Code of Chivalry was a moral system that stated all knights should protect others who cannot protect themselves, like widows, children, and elders. Knights had to be strong and extremely disciplined, and vowed to be loyal, generous, and "noble bearing,“ and were also required to tell the truth at all times and always respect the honor of women.
All knights, like all people from all walks of life in the Middle Ages, had to behave in a certain way. This way was called the Code of Chivalry. The code said that all knights had to be brave in battle; keep their promises; defend the church; and treat noblewomen in a courteous manner. Over time, chivalry became the basis of good manners in Western society.
