Knights' Tales: The Knight of Silk and Steel
From the best-selling author of Horrible Histories... Germany, 1227 One night in a quiet German village, a stranger enters a local tavern. He is Sir Ulrich of Bavaria, a knight with a deadly sword, a noble steed... and a green silk dress. Sir Ulrich fights for Venus, the goddess of love, and dresses as a woman in her honour. He will give a gold ring to any man who dares fight him, but who will step up to such an unusual challenger? A strange and exciting tale, based on a real medieval knight, this story is full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
