**During the training montage Roland helps Chaucer to keep a shield steady; that shield has a sigil of a stag on it. Roland is played by Mark Addy, who would later star in ''{{Series/Game Of Thrones}}'' as Robert Baratheon, whose House use the sigil of a stag.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Just before [[spoiler: his eventual defeat]] Adhemar imagines Wat, Roland, Kate and William delivering an IronicEcho of the speech he gave William. It's rather out of place and usually gets cut out of TV airings.

** You know Jocelyn's maid? Believe it or not, but that's actually Berenice Bejo, who would go on to receive major critical praise and recognition for her role in ''Film/TheArtist'' and be nominated for an Academy Award.
** Creator/HeathLedger, natch. While some fans remember him for his role as William, he would only get his big break on [[Film/BrokebackMountain three]] [[Film/TheDarkKnight subsequent]] [[Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus movies]] (even getting an Academy Award in one of them)... all before [[ActorExistenceFailure biting it midway in production of the last]].
** Also, Mark Addy, more widely know for King Robert Baratheon of Game of Thrones.
** He's not the only Game of Thrones face either. The priest who obliviously takes Jocelyn's deadpan lamentations of SoBeautifulItsACurse at face value? ''Mace Tyrell''.
** Chaucer was Creator/PaulBettany's BreakoutRole: he didn't start getting juicier parts like JARVIS until after this film.

* InformedAttractiveness: Jocelyn. The general consensus is that while she is lovely, the amount of praise over her looks is extremely over the top, particularly since she wears a lot of bizarre and unflattering outfits and hairstyles. Not helping matters is that other female characters, despite being just as, if not more, attractive, receive no attention or remarks. Granted she is a noblewoman, while they are a maid and blacksmith respectively, but some find it CharacterShilling.

** Kate is easily the most popular member of the supporting cast, despite being the last to join them. A lot of people wish she had been the main love interest, though just as many are happy that she is a prominent female character who ''doesn't'' end up as somebody's love interest.

And like Christiana, many thought she was prettier than Jocelyn and she's a LauncherOfAThousandShips.

* TearJerker: InUniverse example; William's friends all suffer some amount of this when he is about to be taken away for impersonating a knight.
--> '''William''': Roland, you would see me run?
--> '''Roland''': Yes.
--> '''William''': And you, Chaucer
--> '''Chaucer''': Yes, with all the pieces of my heart, William.
--> '''William''': Wat, you and me, we're not runners.
--> '''Wat''': Yes, today we are.
--> '''William''': Kate?
--> '''Kate''': Run William.
*** Will answers this by roaring 'No! I will not run!', before following up with a teary-eyed, broken "I'm a knight." He's wanted to be one since he was a boy and simply cannot ''bear'' to give it up.
** And then when they all help Will compose a love letter. "I miss you like the sun misses the flower".
** Anything involving William's father is genuinely moving, which is rather odd given the rest of the film's {{Camp}} tone.
*** Particularly the flashback to when William's father leaves him with Sir Ecter. Though it's simultaneously a CMOH that his father is trying to let William have a chance to follow his dreams, the look on his face as they say goodbye is utterly heart-wrenching. It's not helped by the fact that in the flashback, his father says he was apprenticed to Sir Ecter for seven years and the flashback was prompted by William admitting he'd not been back to England for ''twelve'' years...
** William's reaction when he sees his father again. His expression when he realises his father truly has gone blind is enough to make anyone tear up but then the moment when William's father realises he's talking to his son will be guaranteed to have you reaching for the tissues.
