I learned an interesting fact about knighthood. The most known version of becoming a knight is when someone of noble or royal birth bestows the title to an individual after proving their valor or completing their training as a squire. However, there is another way to become a knight in which knighthood is passed down from father to son. These knights would be nobles who have titles and lands, but will be of lower rank than a baron or duke. I am thinking of using this version of knighthood in my fantasy series and these knights will have a special connection with my main character.
