Childe

In the Middle Ages, a childe or child was the son of a nobleman who had not yet attained knighthood, or had not yet won his spurs.

The term is now obsolete, but is still well known from poetry, such as Robert Browning's Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came and Lord Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgrimage.
