In the British honours system the knightly style of Sir and its female equivalent Dame are followed by the given name only when addressing the holder.
Wives of knights, however, are entitled to the honorific pre-nominal "Lady" before their husband's surname. The style Dame Heather McCartney could be used for the wife of a knight; however, this style is largely archaic and is only used in the most formal of documents, or where the wife is a Dame in her own right such as Dame Norma Major , who gained her title six years before her husband Sir John Major was knighted.
The husbands of Dames have no honorific pre-nominal, so Dame Norma's husband remained John Major until he received his own knighthood.
Since the reign of Edward VII a clerk in holy orders in the Church of England has not normally received the accolade on being appointed to a degree of knighthood.
He receives the insignia of his honour and may place the appropriate letters after his name or title but he may not be called Sir and his wife may not be called Lady.
This custom is not observed in Australia and New Zealand, where knighted Anglican clergymen routinely use the title "Sir".
Ministers of other Christian Churches are entitled to receive the accolade. A knight who is subsequently ordained does not lose his title.
A famous example of this situation was The Revd Sir Derek Pattinson , who was ordained just a year after he was appointed Knight Bachelor , apparently somewhat to the consternation of officials at Buckingham Palace.
A clerk in holy orders who is a baronet is entitled to use the title Sir. Outside the British honours system it is usually considered improper to address a knighted person as 'Sir' or 'Dame'.
Some countries, however, historically did have equivalent honorifics for knights, such as Cavaliere in Italy e. Georg Ritter von Trapp.
Additionally there remain a few hereditary knights in the Netherlands. In Belgium , honorific knighthood not hereditary can be conferred by the King on particularly meritorious individuals such as scientists or eminent businessmen, or for instance to astronaut Frank De Winne , the second Belgian in space.
This practice is similar to the conferral of the dignity of Knight Bachelor in the United Kingdom. In addition, there still are a number of hereditary knights in Belgium see below.
In the Polish—Lithuanian Commonwealth the monarchs tried to establish chivalric orders but the hereditary lords who controlled the Union did not agree and managed to ban such assemblies.
They feared the King would use Orders to gain support for absolutist goals and to make formal distinctions among the peerage which could lead to its legal breakup into two separate classes, and that the King would later play one against the other and eventually limit the legal privileges of hereditary nobility.
The head of state now the President as the acting Grand Master confers knighthoods of the Order to distinguished citizens, foreign monarchs and other heads of state.
The Order has its Chapter. There were no particular honorifics that would accompany a knight's name as historically all or at least by far most of its members would be royals or hereditary lords anyway.
Women were appointed to the Order of the Garter almost from the start. In all, 68 women were appointed between and , including all consorts.
Though many were women of royal blood, or wives of knights of the Garter, some women were neither. They wore the garter on the left arm, and some are shown on their tombstones with this arrangement.
In , a proposal was made to revive the use of robes for the wives of knights in ceremonies, but this did not occur.
Queens consort have been made Ladies of the Garter since Queens Alexandra in ,  Mary in and Elizabeth in The first woman to be granted a knighthood in modern Britain seems to have been H.
Her daughter received the same honor in , as well as her granddaughter in The order was open to "princes and chiefs" without distinction of gender.
The first European woman to have been granted an order of knighthood was Queen Mary, when she was made a Knight Grand Commander of the same order, by special statute, in celebration of the Delhi Durbar of The other was possibly for a female knight.
Here is a quote from Menestrier, a 17th-century writer on chivalry: "It was not always necessary to be the wife of a knight in order to take this title.
Sometimes, when some male fiefs were conceded by special privilege to women, they took the rank of chevaleresse, as one sees plainly in Hemricourt where women who were not wives of knights are called chevaleresses.
It was the first religious order of knighthood to grant the rank of militissa to women. However, this order was suppressed by Pope Sixtus V in In his Glossarium s.
Gertrude in Nivelles Brabant , after a probation of 3 years, are made knights militissae at the altar, by a male knight called in for that purpose, who gives them the accolade with a sword and pronounces the usual words.
The inhabitants [of Tortosa] being at length reduced to great streights, desired relief of the Earl, but he, being not in a condition to give them any, they entertained some thoughts of making a surrender.
Which the Women hearing of, to prevent the disaster threatening their City, themselves, and Children, put on men's Clothes, and by a resolute sally, forced the Moors to raise the Siege.
The Earl, finding himself obliged, by the gallentry of the action, thought fit to make his acknowlegements thereof, by granting them several Privileges and Immunities, and to perpetuate the memory of so signal an attempt, instituted an Order, somewhat like a Military Order, into which were admitted only those Brave Women, deriving the honour to their Descendants, and assigned them for a Badge, a thing like a Fryars Capouche, sharp at the top, after the form of a Torch, and of a crimson colour, to be worn upon their Head-clothes.
He also ordained, that at all publick meetings, the women should have precedence of the Men. That they should be exempted from all Taxes, and that all the Apparel and Jewels, though of never so great value, left by their dead Husbands, should be their own.
These Women having thus acquired this Honour by their personal Valour, carried themselves after the Military Knights of those days.

New York: Crescent Books. Knights were often vassals, or lesser nobles, who fought on behalf of lords in return for land.
Rather than alert Charlemagne to the ambush by blowing a horn, Roland and his men face the ambush alone, so as not to risk the lives of the king and his troops.
Roland dies in battle a martyr and his act of valour is seen as exemplifying the courage and selflessness of a true knight and vassal to the king.
He was considered the greatest tournament knight of his age and also spent some years fighting in the Holy Land. Despite this, when Richard ascended the English throne later that year, William became one of his most dependable generals and was left to govern England when Richard departed for the Holy Land.
Nearly thirty years later in , a year-old William Marshall defeated an invading French army at Lincoln. This was in large part thanks to the Crusades, a series of military expeditions beginning in the late 11th century that were organised by western European Christians in an effort to counter the spread of Islam.
The Catholic Church had traditionally had an uneasy relationship with war and so this religious aspect of chivalry can be seen as an attempt at reconciling the warring tendencies of the noble class with the ethical requirements of the church.
They converge on Cleon in military formation under instructions from their leader:. Cleon is given rough handling and the Chorus leader accuses him of manipulating the political and legal system for personal gain.
Cleon bellows to the audience for help and the Chorus urges the sausage-seller to outshout him. There follows a shouting match between Cleon and the sausage seller with vulgar boasts and vainglorious threats on both sides as each man strives to demonstrate that he is a more shameless and unscrupulous orator than the other.
The knights proclaim the sausage-seller the winner of the argument and Cleon then rushes off to the Boule to denounce them all on a trumped-up charge of treason.
The sausage seller sets off in pursuit and the action pauses for a parabasis , during which the Chorus steps forward to address the audience on behalf of the author.
The Chorus informs us that Aristophanes has been very methodical and cautious in the way he has approached his career as a comic poet and we are invited to applaud him.
The knights then deliver a speech in praise of the older generation, the men who made Athens great, and this is followed by a speech in praise of horses that performed heroically in a recent amphibious assault on Corinth , whither they are imagined to have rowed in gallant style.
Returning to the stage, the sausage seller reports to the knights on his battle with Cleon for control of the Council — he has outbid Cleon for the support of the councillors with offers of meals at the state's expense.
Indignant at his defeat, Cleon rushes onto the stage and challenges the sausage-seller to submit their differences to Demos.
The sausage seller accepts the challenge. They call Demos outdoors and compete with each other in flattering him like rivals for the affections of an eromenos.
He agrees to hear them debating their differences and he takes up his position on the Pnyx here represented possibly as a bench. Demos is won over by these arguments and he spurns Cleon's wheedling appeals for sympathy.
Thereafter the sausage seller's accusations become increasingly absurd: Cleon is accused of waging a campaign against buggery in order to stifle opposition because all the best orators are buggers and he is said to have brought down the price of silphium so that jurors who bought it would suffocate each other with their flatulence.
Cleon loses the debate but he doesn't lose hope and there are two further contests in which he competes with the sausage seller for Demos's favour — a the reading of oracles flattering to Demos; b a race to see which of them can best serve pampered Demos's every need.
The sausage seller wins each contest by outdoing Cleon in shamelessness. Cleon makes one last effort to retain his privileged position in the household — he possesses an oracle that describes his successor and he questions the sausage seller to see if he matches the description in all its vulgar details.
The sausage seller does match the description. In tragic dismay, Cleon at last accepts his fate and he surrenders his authority to the sausage-seller.
Demos asks the sausage seller for his name and we learn that it is Agoracritus , confirming his lowly origin. The gradual demise of the Crusades, the disastrous defeats of knightly armies by foot soldiers and bowmen, the development of artillery , the steady erosion of feudalism by the royal power in favour of centralized monarchy—all these factors spelled the disintegration of traditional knighthood in the 14th and 15th centuries.
Knighthood lost its martial purpose and, by the 16th century, had been reduced to an honorific status that sovereigns could bestow as they pleased.
These honours were reserved for persons of the highest distinction in the nobility or in government service or, more generally, for persons distinguished in various professions and arts.
In the United Kingdom, knighthood is today the only title still conferred by a ceremony in which sovereign and subject both take part personally.
In its modern form the subject kneels and the sovereign touches him or her with a drawn sword usually a sword of state first on the right shoulder, then on the left.
The male knight uses the prefix Sir before his personal name; the female knight the prefix Dame. Knight Article Media Additional Info.
