Here is my best explanation:

'chap' is the definition.

'king sheltered by a knight aged' is the wordplay.
'king' becomes 'r' (r is abbreviation for rex).
'sheltered by' is an insertion indicator.
'knight' becomes 'n' (chess).
'aged' becomes 'old' ('old' can be similar in meaning to 'aged').
'a'+'n'='an'
'r' inserted inside 'an' is 'arn'.
'arn'+'old'='ARNOLD'
