mid-14c., “action, deeds,” from Anglo-French fet, from Old French fait (12c.) “action, deed, achievement,” from Latin factum “thing done,” a noun based on the past participle of facere “make, do” (see factitious). Sense of “exceptional or noble deed” arose c.1400 from phrase feat of arms (French fait d’armes).
