Oaths of the Knights of the Order of St George and the Round Table

In legend, King Arthur instituted the Order of St George and the Round Table

These were the oaths, the oldest manuscript dating from the time of King Henry VII.

Never to put off their armor, except for the purpose of rest at night

To search for adventures wherein to attain bruyt and renown

To defend the poor and weak

To give help to any who should ask it in a just quarrel

Not to offend one another

To fight for the defense and welfare of England

To work for honor rather than profit

Never to break a promise for any reason whatever

To sacrifice themselves for the honor of their country

Sooner choose to die honestly than to fly shamefully
