On his deathbed, Don Quixote affirmed his faith in God and the Church. At last he realized the madness and error in his form of “chivalry.” He had beaten innocent people and done wrong to others in the name of his knight-errant oath. Don Quixote’s deathbed oath rejected and denounced what he had previously sworn to. He realized that the knight-errant oath was a false oath based on his imaginations and dreams. It had caused much trouble and sorrow to him and his family and friends. On his deathbed, convinced of his unchivalrous behavior,  he affirmed the truth and repented of the evil he had done.
