Being knighted or dame is one of the most prestigious honors bestowed by the British government. Both orders give their members the right to use the titles Sir for men and Dame for women before their names. This honor is given to those who have made a significant contribution to any endeavor, usually on a national level. Knights and Dames are traditionally presented with a touch of a sword by the King.
