___ Chivalric is another word to describe men who are chivalrous.

Jacquee T. 'Love for Words'According to the Collins English Dictionary, the definition of “chivalric” is: “related to or connected with chivalry.”

And it defines “chivalry” as:
1. the combination of qualities expected of an ideal knight, esp courage, honour, justice, and a readiness to help the weak
2. courteous behaviour, esp towards women

3. the medieval system and principles of knighthood
4. knights, noblemen, etc, collectively
