The further back in history something has occured, the more we tend to romanticise it. That's not different when it comes to the dark ages as you can see by these Medieval Games here on Silvergames.com! These games conjure up fantastical images of honorable knights going on noble quests to rescue fair maides from the clutches of some evil baron.
The medieval period in history, also known as the Middle Ages, lasted from around the Fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century to the rise of modernity in the 15th century and the rennaissance age. Marked by a rise in religion, the crusades and later the plague, the mediaval period in European history was a fairly difficult time to live through. With the benefit of hindsight and progress we can fondly look back at that time and remember the stories of chivalry and graceful royalty. Stirring tales of loyal armies meeting in glorious battle, of hard-fought sieges and adventures in far away lands. In other words, fantasy stories that only lack a few wizards, dragons and orcs to feel like a movie.
If you want to indulge in the fantasies of a distant past that never was, when men in metal clothing would hit other men in metal clothing with swords; when castles and fortresses were simply what the upper class had to own in order to be taken seriously; and when having a fever was basically a death sentence, then these medieval games will quench that thirst for adventure, glory and a fair maidens! Have fun!
