In Medieval times, the ideal knight was as courteous as he was courageous. The chivalric code continues to spark the imagination like shining armor. "Chivalry is a magic word. It seems to breathe of foreign strands and moonlit groves and silver sands and knights and kings; it seems to tell of glorious deeds and waving plumes and prancing steeds and belted earls and things" (Diane Grant, What Glorious Times They Had, 1976).

This word is music to many ladies' ears, my own included.
