The Knights (Episode 26)
They are noble and brave. They wear shining armours and use lances in battles. They build castles and take part in tournaments – the myth of knights persists until today. But what are these stereotypes based upon? What is fact and fiction? Using re-enactments, special effects and animations, “Moments of History” sheds light on the lives of medieval knights, their military duties and their code of honour. It is an intimate portrait of the warriors who formed Europe’s history for about 500 years.
