Chivalry is the code of conduct associated with the medieval status of knighthood, which arose between 1120 and 1270.
A chivalrous code was upheld by knights who fought for valor, warrior ethos, piety, and courtly manners, all of which culminated in a knights status as an honorable and noble fighter, ready to die for what he believed. Knights fought for the honor of the ones they loved, to win the hearts of a fair maiden and to protect the poor!! Today the concept of chivalry is one that is perhaps lost to a different time, a simpler time when you'd settle an issue by a sword fight to the death!!
