The "Ten Commandments" of Chivalry

The Sentiments of our Order's Original Constitution documents still appertain for The International Knightly Order Valiant of St George, but the actuality of our present day beliefs is best expressed by the brief working document currently in use in the UK Commandary. These are derived from the book “Chivalry” by Leon Gautier, who, in his book gives us "The Ten Commandments of the Code of Chivalry" as follows:

  1. Thou shalt believe all that the Church teaches, and shalt observe all its directions
  2. Thou shalt defend the Church
  3. Thou shalt defend the weak
  4. Thou shalt love the country in which thou was born
  5. Thou shalt not retreat in the face of the enemy
  6. Thou shalt wage war against all that is evil
  7. Thou shalt obey orders of those appointed above you, if they be not contrary to the laws of God
  8. Thou shalt never lie, and shalt remain faithful to thy word
  9. Thou shalt be generous and giving of oneself 
  10. Thou shalt champion the Right and Good, and oppose Injustice and Evil
