fidelity as compared to loyalty

So, I took the Dark is Rising quiz from gwynraven:

You are Barney!

Which 'The Dark Is Rising' Sequence Main Character Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

One of the questions asked was "The greatest virtue is" and two of the choices were 'Fidelity' and 'Loyalty'. I'd never thought of comparing the two before and pondered. I tried the dictionary and many of the definitions equated the two. The only place the two of them differed was in the last of several definitions. Fidelity had a sense of "Adherence to truth; veracity; honesty." while Loyalty had a sense of "the act of binding yourself (intellectually or emotionally) to a course of action". Subtle differences but nuances sometimes can make a difference.
