If you thought that only men could be knights and that one must be awarded a knighthood by the Queen of England, this may not only open some readers’ eyes, but change a few minds as well.
The proper term for a female knight is “Dame.” Some people may think that the only way to earn such a title is through marriage, but a woman may earn the title of “Dame” in her own right, whether she is married or not. Marriage, however, is often the fastest way to achieve such a title.
The male equivalent, of course, is “Sir,” and more often than not, men are considered to be knights, and when one pictures a “knight in shining armour,” they think of a man.
The fastest way to earn a knighthood is to be a British subject who has accomplished something extraordinary in their chosen field of employment. Some examples of those who have recently earned a knighthood and the title of “Sir” or “Dame” include Sir Elton John. Sir Paul McCartney, Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith.
In order to become a proper Sir or Dame (knighthood), one must be appointed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. There is a much easier way to earn this title, and you don’t have to be a British citizen to do it!
There are two different distinctions of British titles: seated and non-seated.
There is another title referred to as Lord (Lady) of the Manor, but the seated and non-seated titles are the focus of this particular order. A seated title refers to a Lord or Lady of a specific place, and there is a parcel of land involved, large or small.
A non-seated title gives you all the perks and privileges of a title without being bound to a specific place. In order to be considered the Lord or Lady of a specifically English place, that person must hold land within that particular region or town of the UK.
