A Knight's Life

A Knight's Life | Grade 4 Medieval Times | Scoop.it

I am sir Nicholas. I am a knight, a proud Christian knight. I just fought in the first crusade that Pope Urban II launched. It was a bloody mess that lasted for three years. But, we finally came out on top. We defeated the Muslims and took back Jerusalem as our holy city. It was not easy though. We had to travel far to get our city back. We had to kill many peasants along the way, but we only did because they were killed our men first. We must stay loyal to chivalry! It is a hard job being a knight, but we endure the tough times for our kingdoms and our leaders! The Pope is our main leader, and he was entirely right to launch this crusade against the Muslims. They had our holy city and were ruining its catholic history! He would not stand for that, so he stood up to them. And us knights followed along because it was the right and best decision. Long live Pope Urban II! We could not have had this great success without his right judgement. Now that the city is ours, we must celebrate! I am going to go partake in the celebration now! Hip hip hooray!

Cautionary tales, and timeless wisdom for the virtuous conduct of life. Well, semi-timeless anyway. These are excerpted from several books in the Internet Archive's amazing collection of children's literature.

The Ecology of Crusading project: new research on medieval Baltic landscape

The Ecology of Crusading project: new research on medieval Baltic landscape | Grade 4 Medieval Times | Scoop.it

The Ecology of Crusading project is a new programme of research investigating the environmental impact of the Baltic Crusades. In the thirteenth century, crusading armies unleashed a relentless holy war against the last indigenous pagan societies of Europe in the eastern Baltic region.

 

Tribal territories were replaced with new Christian states, run by the Teutonic Order and individual bishops. They constructed castles, encouraged colonists, developed towns and introduced Christianity. Recent pilot studies have suggested that the period of crusading and colonisation coincides with a marked intensification in the exploitation of plant and animal resources, and associated landscape changes in the eastern Baltic.

 

Since many aspects of the natural world were sacred to the Baltic tribes, this impact would be synonymous with the cultural changes that created a new, European world at this frontier of Christendom.

William the Conqueror of England

William the Conqueror of England | Grade 4 Medieval Times | Scoop.it

This monarch was one of England's best leaders. One reason why he was so great is because he fought for the throne instead of inheriting it like most kings. This means that he actually deserves to be king, and it shows his strength as well as his battle skills. William also displayed his battle skills by creating an army and winning many battles with them. By winning battles he extended his royal authority because he put the conquered lands into his own kingdom. He also laid foundations for the united-nation states by allowing the remaining Anglo-Saxon population inside of his kingdom to blend cultures with his French nobles. They exchanged customs, languages, and traditions. He also took a complete census taken of his kingdom so he could learn about it. This shows how he extended royal authority because he made an effort to get to know his kingdom better which gave him more power over them. William the Conqueror's legacy still lived on and influenced later monarchs to create royal exchequer (treasury), collect taxes, fees, fines, and other dues. In collecting all this money, he was able to improve upon his empire and help his people further. This is an example of how he laid down the foundation for united nation-states. This is how William the Conqueror was one of England's best monarchs.

Women Knights

Women Knights | Grade 4 Medieval Times | Scoop.it

"Were there women knights in the Middle Ages? Initially I thought not, but further research yielded surprising answers. There were two ways anyone could be a knight: by holding land under a knight's fee, or by being made a knight or inducted into an order of knighthood. There are examples of both cases for women."
