"The Order of the Chivalry" is the generic term, as in "the three
orders of society: those who pray, those who fight, those who work",
not like of "The Order of the Garter".

Our Game would have to go to the chiropractor -- hell, would have to
be sent to the rack -- to get adjusted into any semblance of proper
shape.  But knights bachelor (out of order, so to speak) I think could
be slotted in OK -- or, rather, our knights are already knights
bachelor.  (Well, except for the knight-only order in the West and
doubtless others elsewhere.)
