This spectacular themed luxury chess set based around the Historical Knights of the European Middle Ages.
 
From the beginning of the 9th Century, the first knights appeared in Europe powerful and violent.
Later in the 11th Century the Church succeeded to enforce discipline upon these people and to direct their activities to beneficial purposes aid to use their power to defend the poor and the weak as well as Christianity.
In order to become a knight, one had to be trained in hunting and travelling, familiarize them selves with horses and warfare.
At the age of 20 they were knighted at a special ceremony during which they were given their swords and had to swear to use them only for sacred and fair purposes.
Many knights after they were called upon from the Pope participated in crusades in the Middle East against the Arabs and the Saracens.
On their way to Middle East, they passed through Greece, where they built many castles.
While in Greece they spent periods of time in Corfu, Rhodes etc.

However, knighthood and the ideal of knighthood started to wane around the 15th Century.
