The Empire of Chivalry and Steel is an educational 501(c)3. Our focus is to learn and teach others about the period of history between 800 AD to 1650 AD, commonly referred to as the Middle Ages. We hold events that allow members to participate in arts, service and combat forms; and we are available to hold demonstrations and/or presentations on Medieval Culture for the General Public, Schools (K-12), and Universities.

The ECS strives to promote the culture and traditions of the Middle Ages, as well as the ideals of Honor and Chivalry in all of our activities.

New branches of the ECS may be started with as few as 5 members. If there are no chapters in your area, and you are interested in starting a new branch, please see the directions on the Main ECS site.
