Chivalry in Medieval Times | Combat of the Thirty | Hundred Years War part 10

Chivalry was a code of conduct developed in the 12th and 13th century, a perceived idea of honour and fair play. As part of the Hundred Years War series, Kevin Hicks explores the Combat of the Thirty, an episode in the Breton War of Succession in 1351 where combat was fought to determine who would rule the Duchy of Brittany. What may have started with a chivalric challenge to single combat, quickly escalated into a tournament to the death of 60 men.
