Chivalry Chivalry , or the chivalric code, is an informal, varying code of conduct developed between and , but never decided on or summarized in a single document. It was associated with the medieval Christian institution of knighthood ; the ideals of chivalry were popularized in medieval literature the Matter of Britain and Matter of France , the former based on Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae , written in the s, which introduced the legend of King Arthur.

All of these were taken as accurate until the beginnings of modern scholarship in the 19th century; the code of chivalry that developed in medieval Europe had its roots in earlier centuries. It arose in the Holy Roman Empire from the idealisation of the cavalryman—involving military bravery, individual training, service to others—especially in Francia, among horse soldiers in Charlemagne's cavalry; the term "chivalry" derives from the Old French term chevalerie, which can be translated as "horse soldiery".
The term referred only to horse-mounted men, from the French word for horse, but it became associated with knightly ideals. Over time, its meaning in Europe has been refined to emphasise more general social and moral virtues. The code of chivalry, as it stood by the Late Middle Ages , was a moral system which combined a warrior ethos, knightly piety, courtly manners, all combining to establish a notion of honour and nobility.
In English, the term appears from ; the meaning of the term evolved over time because in the Middle Ages the meaning of chevalier changed from the original concrete military meaning "status or fee associated with a military follower owning a war horse" or "a group of mounted knights" to the ideal of the Christian warrior ethos propagated in the romance genre, becoming popular during the 12th century, the ideal of courtly love propagated in the contemporary Minnesang and related genres.
The ideas of chivalry are summarized in three medieval works: the anonymous poem Ordene de Chevalerie, which tells the story of how Hugh II of Tiberias was captured and released upon his agreement to show Saladin the ritual of Christian knighthood. None of the authors of these three texts knew the other two texts, the three combine to depict a general concept of chivalry, not in harmony with any of them. To different degrees and with different details, they speak of chivalry as a way of life in which the military, the nobility, religion combine; the "code of chivalry" is thus a product of the Late Middle Ages, evolving after the end of the crusades from an idealization of the historical knights fighting in the Holy Land and from ideals of courtly love.
Gautier's Ten Commandments of chivalry, set out in the 19th century, hundreds of years after the time of medieval chivalry, are: Thou shalt believe all that the Church teaches and thou shalt observe all its directions. Thou shalt defend the Church. Thou shalt respect all weaknesses, shalt constitute thyself the defender of them. Thou shalt love the country. Thou shalt not recoil before thine enemy. Thou shalt make war against the infidel without mercy. Thou shalt perform scrupulously thy feudal duties.
Thou shalt never lie, shalt remain faithful to thy pledged word.

Thou shalt be generous, give largesse to everyone. Thou shalt be everywhere and always the champion of the Right and the Good against Injustice and Evil. There is no reference to women, quests, or travel; this list would serve a soldier, or a clergyman. No medieval knight came close to carrying out all of these "commandments" all of the time. Literary knights, being fictitious, did better, but not every "commandment" was followed or considered by every knight.
Chivalry is to some extent a subjective term. Fans of chivalry have assumed since the late medieval period that there was a time in the past when chivalry was a living institution, when men acted chivalrically, when chivalry was alive and not dead, the imitation of which period would much improve the present. This is the mad mission of Don Quixote , protagonist of the most chivalric novel of all time and inspirer of the chivalry of Sir Walter Scott and of the U. South:: to restore the age of chivalry, thereby improve his country, it is a version of the myth of the Golden Age.
With the birth of modern historical and literary research, scholars have found that however far back in time "The Age of Chivalry " is searched for, it is always further in the past back to the Roman Empire. There he brought about the practical reform of opera's dramaturgical practices for which many intellectuals had been campaigning. With a series of radical new works in the s, among them Orfeo ed Euridice and Alceste , he broke the stranglehold that Metastasian opera seria had enjoyed for much of the century. Gluck introduced more drama by using simpler recitative and cutting the long da capo aria , his operas have half the length of a typical baroque opera.

The strong influence of French opera encouraged Gluck to move to Paris in November Fusing the traditions of Italian opera and the French into a unique synthesis, Gluck wrote eight operas for the Parisian stage. Though he was popular and credited with bringing about a revolution in French opera, Gluck's mastery of the Parisian operatic scene was never absolute, after the poor reception of his Echo et Narcisse , he left Paris in disgust and returned to Vienna to live out the remainder of his life.
Gluck's earliest known ancestor is his great-grandfather, Simon Gluckh von Rockenzahn, whose name is recorded in the marriage contract of his son, the forester Johann Adam Gluck. The family name Gluck comes from the Czech word for boy. In its various spellings, it is found in the records of Rokycany.
Gluck's father, was born in Neustadt an der Waldnaab on 28 October , one of four sons of Hans Adam Gluck who became foresters or gamekeepers. Alexander served in a contingent of about 50 soldiers under Philipp Hyazinth von Lobkowitz, the son of Ferdinand August von Lobkowitz, during the War of Spanish Succession , according to Gluck family tradition, rose to the level of gunbearer to the great general of the imperial forces, Eugene of Savoy. In Alexander settled outside Berching as a forester and hunter in the service of the monastery Seligenporten, Plankstetten Abbey, the mayors of Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz.
He took the vacant position of hunter in Erasbach in or In Alexander built a house in Erasbach and by 12 September had taken possession of it, his son Christoph was baptized Christophorus Willibaldus on 4 July in the village of Weidenwang, a parish that at that time included Erasbach. Gluck's father had to reapply to retain his position and received no salary until after , when he began receiving 20 Gulden , he obtained additional employment in the vicinity of Weidenwang in as a forester in the service of Seligenporten Monastery, after with Plankstetten Abbey.
In Alexander Gluck warned he might be terminated. He sold his house in August and voluntarily left Erasbach near the end of September to take up employment as head forester in Reichstadt , serving the Duchess of Tuscany , the wealthy Anna Maria Franziska of Saxe-Lauenburg , since separated from her husband Gian Gastone de' Medici , the last duke of Tuscany. In Alexander moved with his family to Eisenberg to take his final post, head forester to Prince Philipp Hyazinth von Lobkowitz, it is not sure if Christoph was sent to the Jesuit college in 20 km southwest.
The Alsatian painter Johann Christian von Mannlich relates in his memoirs, published in , that Gluck told him about his early life in , he quotes Gluck as saying: "My father was forest master at N In my homeland everyone is musical. As I was passionate about the art, I made rapid progress.
I played several instruments and the schoolmaster, singling me out from the other pupils, gave me lessons at his house when he was off duty. I no longer dreamt of anything but music. In or , when Gluck was 13 or 14, he went to Prague.
A childhood flight from home to Vienna is included in several contemporary accounts of Gluck's life, including Mannlich's, but some scholars have cast doubt on Gluck's picturesque tales of earning food and shelter by his singing as he travelled. Most now feel it is more that the object of Gluck's travels was not Vienna but Prague. In the Italian version Quinn was dubbed by Tito Gobbi ; the film's sets were designed by the art director Gastone Medin.
