What did a knight get paid?

A knight got his money from plundering a city or town after a battle. His lord would give him pieces of land that had been conquered. The other thing a knight would get was praise, honour, and a high position at court. You can imagine that, if he did a good job for his lord, a knight could become quite rich!
