The story of a knight of desperate courage
This story happened a long time ago, when the British and French found out which of them is steeper in a big war, which historians later call the Hundred Years. In Portugal, in the tournament, one English knight was called up for several fights. Three of them were to be held on spears, and not just like that, but in the name of love for a beautiful lady.
So two knights came together on a lists and rushed at each other. The Frenchman split his spear, but the Englishman does not. He was only able to knock off the helmet from the Frenchman, as he was loosely fixed. In the next two races the story repeated. As a result, the Englishman did not break a single spear, that is, he lost the battle.
The English knight and his comrades began to resent, to which he was told that no one prevented him from fastening the helmet too weakly so that he could be knocked down. Victory given to the Frenchman.
And now an important note from modern fans of knight tournaments. The fact is that such a weak helmet mount is actually very dangerous.The Frenchman literally risked his head, which was hit and carefully prepared a trick with a falling helmet. And it was possible to stay without a head when a spear arrived. So that the Frenchman was not only dexterous, he also won in this history described in the chronicles completely on the case.
