Is chivalry dead in Britain?

Chivalry[1] is a term related to the medieval institution of knighthood. It is usually associated with ideals of knightly virtues, honour and courtly love. The word is derived from the French word chevalier, indicating one who rides a horse (Fr. cheval).

Today, the terms chivalry and chivalrous are used to describe courteous behavior, especially that of men towards women.

    Nought to do with love, and everything to do with making sure fellow Knights were okay, but those beneath them weren't!

    I totally owned that thread, chivalry may not be dead, but it's on it's knees, how many people these days deserve courtesy and respect shown towards them?

    I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.
