Interesting question. Sounds a little bit like homework though. :tsk:

I suppose there's a link between the boys being knighted and the whole idea of the round table, courage, chivalry, etc...

Note how Peter gives Miraz time to rest and get up in their single combat in PC.

Note how Jill and Eustace are sent off on a quest with signs to follow in SC. They meet magical people who are not what they seem to be. They accept hospitality from persons who turn out to be enemies.

Reepicheep in VDT has that sense of courage; that 'twere shame upon our knightly honor to turn back in fear from this lively adventure set before us, etc...

In PC, Lewis says for the Pevensies to return to Narnia after hundreds of years was like King Arthur returning (and he would be very happy to have him come back, he said!).
