The [[TropeCodifier Trope Codifier]]s are the {{Chivalric Romance}}s of the medieval Matters of Britain (KingArthur) and of France (Charlemagne) -- especially the innumberable [[OlderThanTheyThink fantasy novels]] and verse epics of the 15th through 17th centuries which were based on, set in, or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem_Delivered vaguely inspired by]] the older Carolingian myths). The Arthurian myths have a less militantly idealistic style than the Carolingian ones; the Arthurian work most completely of this style is ''Literature/SirGawainAndTheGreenKnight''.

The closest analogue to European chivalry was [[BushidoIndex bushido]], the code of the Japanese {{Samurai}}, but the Japanese code emphasized loyalty to one's lord, even to the point of doing evil, while the European one emphasized loyalty to one's conscience, even to the point of treachery.
