The knight in "The Knight's Tale," is everyone's favorite companion on the pilgrimage and everyone's ideal of a hero. He believes in chivalry, stays true to what he believes in, and acts honestly, truthfully, and faithfully always. The knight was well respected and honored by those who knew him. During the crusades, he fought courageously and selflessly. The knight is Chaucer's picture of the ideal man.
