Later the word came to be used in its general sense of ‘courtesy.’. Chivalry, or the chivalric code, is an informal, varying code of conduct developed between and It was associated with the medieval Christian institution of knighthood; knights' and gentlewomen's behaviours were governed [when?] by chivalrous social codes.
