Bastard!, Berserk and Slayers are the ones that immediately come to mind.

just regular knights? or knights shooting lazers and kamehameas and stuff, first one is a bit rare, second one there are plenty.

actual battle scenes are pretty rare in anime, fights usually focus on one v one combat or small groups. large battles with detail would probably take up too much time.

anyway, a few ideas:
Bastard!!!
claymore
tears to tiara
slayers
spice and wolf (sort of, a few action scenes in it although not a whole lot)
kyo kara maoh

if you're looking for European style stuff it's a bit rare since most anime concentrate on japanese stuff when they go back in time

edite: oooh, how could I forget: Fate/Stay Night (series and movie). If you're looking for king/Queen/Heroic Knight type characters you'll find plenty in there. You'll just have to search around a bit to make sure there isn't a skyscraper or something in the background.

Ones that come to mind...

Zero no Tsukaima
Record of Lodoss War
Code Geass (not medieval, but knights, kings and battles there are)
Scrapped Princess (might be pushing it)
Le Chevalier D'Eon

If I recall correctly, Princess Tutu has some pretty nice "Knight/Prince" characters.

Woah. Thanks a million all of ya. Now I got plenty of options to explore here. To be honest, I didn't think of Claymore, Fate/Stay Night, or Berserk. Forgot those had knights and kings in it.

Still, I appreciate the info. you all gave me; just saved me time having to search the internet for anime with stuff like this. :D
