TRUTH !!
Primogeniture (eldest son inherited everything), meant that the younger sons
of even great houses set out into the world to make a living with their
horse, armor, wits, and skill in arms.
One of the ways that many knights could build their fortunes was to hire
themselves out as mercenaries. The plunder gained in warfare included
horses, armor, baggage, and ransom of wealthy captives.
In times of peace, tournaments were depended on to raise a knight's income.
In jousting, the loser paid the price of his horse and armor to the winning
knight as a ransom.
