Order of the Chivalry

R (1)
Members of the Order of the Chivalry are awarded this rank for excellence in heavy combat arts. SCA Knights are recognized by their white belts, and also gold spurs and gold chains (in some Kingdoms, all spurs and unadorned open-linked chains regardless of color are reserved for knights only). Knights are addressed as Sir, Dame, or some other title (as the Knight chooses). Knights may take Squires, promising younger fighters, as students of chivalry and martial art. Squires are usually recognizable by their red belts (note: the red belt is not customary in all Kingdoms). Some Knights serve as squires first, but this is not a requirement.
