A Knight's Tale

Factual error: In every scene where knights collide on the lyst, you see their lances in one hand and the reins to their horse in the other. When knights jousted, they would drop their reins before impact so that a severe impact would not cause them to jerk the reins or become entangled in them causing more damage to themselves or the horse.

Factual error: Worth mentioning, because we see it written on screen: in French, Jocelyn is a man's name -- even its pronounciation is different. For it to be a woman's name, it has to be spelled Jocelyne.

Mistakes

On the jousting scene where William loses his helmet, he has a monstrous bruise under his right eye (in the late afternoon). That night at the banquet, there is no trace of the bruise. So far as I know, even a black eye doesn't completely heal that quickly.

Trivia

Several of the named knights were, in fact, real, though many of them are from different time periods. Ulrich von Lichtenstein was a knight and author who was said to have invented the concept of chivalry and courtly love. Piers Courtenay was a descendant of Edward I, born in the 15th Century. Sir Thomas Colville, Edward III's disguise, was a knight from the 13th Century. Lord Roger Mortimer was the lover of King Edward II's wife - Isabella of France - and was hanged, drawn, and quartered by the Black Prince's father, King Edward III.
