This engraving is part of the Tarocchi group marked with the letter “E,” and named Conditions of Man. This series outlines the social and hierarchical order of ten characters (Beggar, Servant, Artisan, Merchant, Gentleman, Knight, Doge King, Emperor, and Pope), starting from the lower grade and ending with the most important one.
Here, Chavalier (The Knight) is shown as a full-length male figure, turned to the left. The elegantly dressed man is holding a dagger in his hands. Behind him on the left, a servant is carrying a sword.
