Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Chivalry was a set of written rules for knights

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because chivalry was not a set of written rules for knights. Instead, it was a code of conduct that encompassed a knight's moral and social obligations. While there were some written texts that discussed chivalry, it was primarily a set of ideals and values that knights were expected to uphold, rather than a specific set of rules.

    Chivalry did not include the way knights treated peasants

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Chivalry, a code of conduct followed by knights in medieval times, did not include guidelines on how knights should treat peasants. Chivalry mainly focused on ideals such as honor, bravery, loyalty, and respect towards fellow knights and the nobility. Peasants were considered lower class and were not given the same level of consideration as the nobility. Therefore, the statement that chivalry did not include the way knights treated peasants is true.

    Which of the following was NOT a duty of a noble woman

    • A.

      Raising a large family

    • B.

      Teaching children to read and write

    • C.

      Doing spinning, weaving and cooking

    • D.

      Ruling a fief

    Correct Answer
    D. Ruling a fief
    Explanation
    A noble woman in medieval times had various responsibilities, such as raising a large family, teaching children to read and write, and doing spinning, weaving, and cooking. However, ruling a fief was not one of her duties. The ruling of a fief was typically reserved for noble men, as it involved political and military leadership.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Troubadours wrote  _ _ _ _ _ about noble women

    Correct Answer
    poems
    poem
    songs
    song
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "poems, poem, songs, song" because troubadours were medieval poets and musicians who composed and performed works of poetry and songs. Their compositions often revolved around themes of courtly love and chivalry, and they frequently wrote about noble women. The use of both the plural and singular forms of "poem" and "song" in the answer options accounts for the fact that troubadours would write multiple poems and songs about noble women.

  • 5. 

    Noble women had to bear many children

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the past, noble women were expected to bear many children as it was seen as their duty to continue the family line and ensure the succession. This was particularly important for noble families who needed heirs to inherit titles, land, and wealth. Additionally, having many children was also a way to strengthen political alliances through arranged marriages. Therefore, it can be inferred that noble women had to bear many children.
