Knight of the Black Rose

(from the Dragonlance novels)
One of my favorite songs is named Black Rose by Thin Lizzy, an Irish Rock Band in the 1960's and 1970's.

Black knights are an interesting lot. They were usually 'freelance' or 'rogue' knights kind of like the 'ronin' samurai - a knight without a 'master'. Neither did he keep a squire to polish his armor. So he would put some goop made with ashes/soot and suet or some sort of fat on his armor to keep it from rusting. And so his armor was black.

So I read once or twice.

I think I read that too. Can't recall if it was in a story I read or an historical piece. If it was in a story, that idea must have come from somewhere.

It's hard to tell what's what there because 'Black Knights' are still very much a part of our 'collective consciousness' in the more modern sense - as with Batman for example. And they're immensely popular in gaming. So, finding any real honest to goodness info on it is kind of a lost cause.

It did make sense to me though. The suet or whatever grease they used would have waterproofed the metal for a time and the ashes are a form of carbon. Carbon is often used to harden some metals. Steel in particular. I think it's used in iron smithing as well, but not for sure.

It's basically the same stuff they'd use to smear on their faces and bodies in hunting days as camouflage and to keep warm. Ashes and grease for the black most times.

Seems I also read they would put the coated piece over the hot coals/embers and it would bake it on and somehow bond with the metal rather than melting off as you would think. The coals probably had to be in a certain 'state' of dying, I should imagine. Again, I only remember something about this.

From Memory the Black was Pine sap turned into Lampblack and applied to protect the poor quality Iron armor.

The black knight is now a legendary character who can be a heroe or a villain. As always with legends, there's obviously something real at the beginning.
As character inspired by black knights, I think we can add Zorro too.
