Medieval Monday ~ #3

Updated: Jun 28, 2022

Good morn! Today's fast medieval fact will tell you the three stages of a knight's life. When did a young boy begin training? When was he dubbed, or knighted?

  1. Page

Age: around 7

What did they do: A nobleman's son was sent off to another lord's house to become a page. There, he learned manners of the court, horseback, hunting, how to handle some weapons, and would serve a local knight to learn.

2. Squire

Age: around 14

What did they do: Assisted a knight full time. This stage would fully prepare a young man for battled, by using weapons and training in chivalry.

3. Knight

Age: the dubbing usually took place from 18-21

What did they do: Now, the boy had become a man. This man had been dubbed, hopefully by the baron or lord he trained under, and would go on to serve in wars and tournaments, or just general protection.
