17" Medieval Knights Metal Chess Set

Renaissance had its undoubted protagonists: Knights have been evolved from the iron-masked soldiers of the Middle Ages to the idolized heroes of higher nobility. Through Europe they were named Knights, Sirs, Musketeers or Guardians and were portrayed as the ideal men. With their own code of honor, knighthood‘s ideals of virtue was immortalized in history through Renaissance literature and romance.

The figures are created according to the evolution of the Knight to a noble, elegant guardian and protector, during the renaissance period. In order to become a knight, one had to be trained in hunting and travelling and familiarize themselves with horses and warfare. At the age of 20 they were knighted at a special ceremony during which they were given their swords and had to swear to use them only for sacred and fair purposes.
