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.LorgSkyegon
Trivia: Geoff Chaucer threatens to immortalize the summoner and the pardoner in literature, and the real Geoffrey Chaucer did just that in his Canterbury Tales. The Pardoner and Summoner were portrayed as two of the most corrupt and vile people imaginable in Medieval society. They are also homosexual lovers.
Trivia: This was a story written by Geoffrey Chaucer. At the end, Chaucer (the man that makes the announcements before the jousts) says something along the lines of "I think I'll write this down," which in real life he does, forming the basis for this movie.
Trivia: There is an extra scene after the credits - I won't say what happens but let's just say that it's pretty disgusting.
Trivia: The Black Prince is shown at the battle of Poitiers. At that time, Geoffrey Chaucer would have been barely in his teens.
