An answer to my own question...

Well here it is
I decided to look it up
so it would just be totally correct
as movies and books always put their own spin
on some terms and names..
What is Medieval...
The Middle Ages (adjectival form: medieval or mediƦval) is a period of European history from the 5th century to the 15th century. The period followed the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476, and preceded the Early Modern Era. It is the middle period in a three-period division of history: Classical, Medieval, and Modern. The term "Middle Ages" (medium aevum) was coined in the 15th century and reflects the view that this period was a deviation from the path of classical learning, a path supposedly reconnected by Renaissance scholarship.

And there you have it!
