The Knight Archetype is probably one of my Favorites....Known for his chivalry, loyalty, self-sacrifice and protection, the Knight is most known for his love of honor...but be careful of Romantic delusions with these Knights....:)

Hey there, would it be okay if I used this image on my site promoting a modernised version of chivalry?

why is he trying to cut off his fingers...?

Knight, huh? Is that why you're holding a gladius? A ROMAN weapon? Roman fighters were either legionnaires or gladiators. Not knights.
GolanArms's avatar
He has a catholic cross and the sword looks more like a spatha, could be a late era roman where the roman army started to use more cavalry.

i would not like to ruin that self-sacrifice myth but you know where that habit for letting ladies enter first comes? from knights! they were so feared of being assasinated that they let the ladies enter first ...and if there were an assasin he/she stabbed the lady and knight remained intact plus by the time the knight already did have enough time to draw his sword and kill the assasin... I'm not sure if this is true but sounds reasonable.

Hi :wave:
You submitted this to the group FAVS rather than into the gallery itself, I have just asked your permission to submit it to the correct gallery in the group instead.

Thanks so much and welcome to the group :blowkiss:

Great oogly moogly!:faint:
This is an actual photograph!!!????!!?!?!
The context! the lighting! he looks like he just strolled off the battlefield!
How did you find this guy? He even looks like a true Praetorian Guard! So much win in genealogy accuracy that it's almost giving me a nose bleed.:giggle:
