Hi there,

If there's a history buff in the house, could you answer this for me? (Big smile with blush.)

Is there any information online about ghost knights? I remember hearing that they were knights that would come up from underground and take the enemy by surprise. Is there any other info on them? I wanna say they existed about 10 or 11 century AD. That's about all I know.

Thanks.

Hey, Calliopenjo -

I had never heard of the ghost knights, but this sounds like an interesting lead. One of these days I may take the time to pursue it.

This (http://boards.history.com/topic/New-Series/Ghost-Knights/520025119) is all I could find when I entered "Ghost Knights" in Google. There's a link halfway down to an interest page on Castle Valkenburg in the Netherlands, where the ghost knights apparently based themselves. The castle site has several links leading to other pages, including what appears to be an official castle web site; you might be able to contact someone who knows something.

Good luck!
