  1. I researched this question -- and couldn't find an answer. Apparently there were no overt penalties. The code of chivalry expected knights to adhere to certain conduct as a matter of principle.

  2. I think Ms. Sue is right. I looked in many places, too, and found nothing. The story "Gawain and the Green Knight" is an example of what lengths a knight was expected to go so that he DIDN'T break a promise.
