Did the concept of chivalry affect the royal house too?
Though there’s a smattering of proclamations about chivalry’s status as dead or not dead throughout the last several decades, the tradition came from Arthurian times—kind of. The Arthurian legend included the Knights of the Round Table and their code of honor has transcended the bounds of time. No matter the fact-or-fiction aspects of the tale, this code of valor and loyalty permeated society for centuries and is still going today! However, where it related to princes was like most things, it can be taken or left depending on the monarch. Chivalry is largely relegated to the behavior of knights and gentlemen, aka, those hoping to improve their station in life. But when you have today’s general sense of goodness, your little prince can undoubtedly be taught chivalry in the modern sense of the word.
