This research aims to understand the representations of chivalry and the medieval knight in Tirant lo Blanc, written around 1460 by Joanot Martorell (1413-1468). The aforementioned work is a chivalry novel that narrates the adventures of the knight Tirant from the moment he was just a young apprentice of the art of chivalry until he became a knight of great fame. However, what characterizes and draws attention to this work, and differentiates it from other chivalry novels, is the most human character with which the author sought to portray society and knightly life in the 15th century. For this reason, Tirant lo Blanc is characterized more as a “historical novel”, a genre that stood out in the 15th century and thus being distinct from “books of chivalry”, which place their narratives in fantastic times and wonderful lands. Therefore, in this sense, the work of Joanot Martorell is an important document for understanding the actions and transformations that affected and permeated the space of social, political, cultural and imaginary relations in the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the Middle Age.
