Trumpets blare as Jason Kingsley’s trusty steed gallops across Oxfordshire’s rolling green hills.
Proficient in swordsmanship, a keen archer and an expert in all kinds of medieval combat, Kingsley definitely isn’t what you would expect from one of Britain’s most successful and decorated entrepreneurs.
By day he’s CEO of Rebellion Developments. A 25-year-old video game studio in Oxford that Kingsley and his brother built up from nothing to sales of nearly £40 million last year.
In 2012 he was awarded an OBE by the Queen for his services to the British economy.
But step inside Kingsley’s office and you’ll quickly realize, this is no ordinary CEO.
Suits of armor deck the office walls, while spears, lances and all kinds of instruments seemingly designed for torture glisten around the room.
That’s because Jason Kingsley leads a double life, as a medieval British knight.
“I’ve got 14 horses, I live on a farm, I muck out, I joust, follow the chivalric code, and I don’t need to go to the gym because I’m literally trundling wheelbarrows filled with shit every day of my life,” the entrepreneur tells Forbes.
Kingsley even directs and stars in his own Modern History TV YouTube channel.
