Knights Coloring Pages
In ancient history, as in Athens and Rome, the knight was a noble of the second class who in military service had to furnish his own mount and equipment. In Roman society, the knights ranked below the senatorial class and above ordinary citizens. Knighthood was conferred by the overlord with the accolade (a blow, usually with the flat of the sword, on the neck or shoulder). Knights were ordinarily accompanied in battle by personal attendants and servants.
