Peasant boy William Thatcher is a squire who dreams of becoming a knight. His current master dies unexpectedly and to earn money he pretends to be a knight in the world jousting championships. William with some strange friends creates Sir Ulrich Von Richtenstein who is from a fictional country in Europe. William/ Sir Ulrich enter the jousting tournament and starts winning. He has to learn more than just jousting but swordsmanship and also entertaining and dancing. It seems his biggest prize is not winning the jousting tournament but proving himself and winning the heart of Lady Jocelyn.
