A collection of Ladyknights, for anyone feeling particularly chivalrous.

Awesome, but they are just knights. A knighthood and Damehood are the same thing (in fact in medieval times the term Damehood didn’t exist, if a woman fought from horseback, or inherited a knighted peerage, she was a knight). It’s one of the nice holdovers from European gender-political-history.
