The Tudor Knight was the first line of defence employed by monarchs from Henry VIII to Elizabeth I, the last of a long tradition of knighthood dating back to the 11th century. He was well trained in the arts of war and chivalry from a young age, and he was skilled in the arts and languages, for the knight was a fighter and a gentleman. Knighthood during the Tudor era saw reforms in recruitment, appearance, and most radically in training and equipment. This book follows the knight from his first jousts to his real experience of battle, and it examines the innovations in military technology that influenced his training, equipment and experience of battle.
