The real life story of an English warrior who fought at Crecy and Poitiers and went on to become one of the most famous conditierre not only in Italy but the rest of Europe too. In this story the real life meeting of Sir John Hawkwood and Geoffrey Chaucer, the poet took place. Chaucer worked for the King of England at the time and was also a friend of Bernabò Visconti. There are some scholars who believe that the knight, in The Knight’s Tale is based upon Sir John Hawkwood. I hope it is true.
