Medieval warriors of noble descent, who fought on a horse, were called knights. They preferred using a sword as a weapon, and seldom spears and axes. They appear in Europe along with feudalism, and the period they were most active in was between the 11th and 13th century. By the end of the Middle Ages, knights are replaced by infantry mercenaries, after gradually losing in significance.
