I'm working on a giant AU fic that takes place in an alternate history of our world. It sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is, lol.
Anyway, in my story I have a Knight ordered by his Prince to protect a Princess and her guard. However, his King has ordered the Princess to be captured. Following his Prince's orders goes against the Code of Chivalry and I know he will face issues with his honor and his fellow Knights. My question is - would his choice to follow the prince make him a traitor? And if so what would the consequences be?
