A Knight's Own Book of Chivalry

A Knight's Own Book of Chivalry by Geoffroi De Charny

A medieval knight discussing knighthood.

Bit different in structure than a modern treatment would be. Discusses what men-at-arms do in various ways, and how love ought to be secret (though he speaks of men who say they would not consent to be Queen Guinevere's love it were not known) and what sorts of virtues are and how they are important.
