    Trivia Q: What was deemed to be the sport of Kings?

    I grew up in Ohio about 10 minutes from the Granville Ohio Polo Fields. In the 1980's they had a Sport of Kings Tournament. So I would say the sport of kings would be Polo.

      Nearly right. Horses were a sign of wealth for royalty but Polo is not the correct answer.

    I think the term most commonly refers to horse racing.

      As I said to danstanton horses were a sign of wealth for royalty, and used in jousting, horse racing, polo etc, but this is not the answer I'm looking for.

    There are many correct answers to this question. It depends on which part of the world you live in, which era your referring to, even some regional answers would be different. Horse Racing, Falconing, Polo, Fox Hunting or even the album title by Triumph (I don't remember the year)

    With that said I would probably answer "Falconing" since that was practiced all over Europe the Middle East and Asia.

      Hooray, Congratulations you got it right. Sorry I have no prize though!! Whilst horse racing, polo and fox hunting are sports of Kings, it is Falconry that is deemed to be the sport of kings and is the oldest sport known to man. Since 680 BC

    Here in the UK it is said to be polo - the type you do on horseback, not in water!

    Polo. Said to go back to the Persian Emperors.
