Awesome set for a fantasy buff and will also make a very unique addition to the game room or perhaps an office setting.

What are the dimensions?
Chess Board Base: 15". Chess Board Height: 5". Glass Board: 13.5" x 13.5". King size: 2". King base width: 1".
What the heck is the king base width? It is the diameter of the base of the king (the bottom of the king piece). This measurement is important when selecting the right chess board square size for the chess pieces that will be playing on it.
A Knight's Tale
From the pages of history and the Middle Ages is a Knight’s Tale, it is about 2 knights who fall in love with the same woman (not good). The story is unique because the knights are sworn to support each other no matter what, so we have a major problem!
A knight that behaves with honor follows rituals, duties and chivalry of the time, the path of chivalry included defending the helpless, keeping ones promises and remaining loyal to your fellow knights and your lord.
The love of one woman also known as his lady love was referred to as courtly love and believe it or not there were rules (in writing) that spelled out in plain terms the system of love and the behavior of the knights within that system.
You may not experience courtly love but you certainly can fall in love with this amazing chess set of that era.
