The Medieval Crusader knight is one of three types of fighting men during the Middle Ages: Knights, Foot Soldiers, and Archers. The knight was covered in multiple layers of armor, and could pass through other soldiers that were standing in his way. Knights were also the wealthiest of soldiers. To become a knight you had to be the son of a noble. At age eight, the boy started his training to become a knight. He was taught how to ride a horse with armor and fight with a sword. Once the boy was trained at about fifteen, he became a squire. As a squire the boy would feed and take care of the knights weapons and armor. Once the boy was found worthy, he was dubbed a knight.
