FC: The Death of Jousting | Sehaj R.

1: My name is Sir Luke Henry II, and I want to tell you how jousting was popular and how it declined. There were many reasons for the fall, but I will tell you the main three.

2: Wooden stands were made for the nobles to sit on. The stands were also decorated with colorful pennants. Some tents were made for the wealthy peasants. Everyone could attend a tournament, which included women and children.

3: Jousting was a sport in which people settled disputes in judicial combat. The winner would be considered that God was in his will. This was popular at the time.

4: Ist Reason of Decline | As technology grew, the musket was invented in the Late Middle Ages. The people liked the new technology, and the decline of jousting began.

5: 2nd Reason of Decline | Plays and costumes were becoming more and more popular. William Shakespeare was influencing the people of the Middle Ages into a new work of entertainment. This was another reason for the decline.

6: #3rd Reason of Decline | More and more people drifted away from jousting and went to the new kinds of artillery. These three reasons showed how this medieval sport declined.
