Fun Medieval Times Knight Facts:
All Knights begin their training as Squires - just as they did in the Middle Ages - learning horse care, sword fighting, and weaponry. It takes a minimum of six months of training to become a Knight.
Knights perform with real metal weapons and wear authentic armor. During battle scenes, real titanium swords create sparks.
Every shield must be repainted after every show.
When jousting, the Knights charge at speeds of approximately 15 to 20 miles per hour and reach an impact velocity speed of about 30 to 40 miles per hour.
