|Available in||Stronghold 2|
|Type||Durable melee unit|
The knight is a noble soldier with heavy armament and armour, the best and most expensive soldier. His combat capabilities are unmatched, capable of dismantling even the measly swordsman in a matter of seconds. His health pool makes him virtually immune to projectiles and blunt weapons.
The knight spawns on foot from the barracks. However, he can mount a warhorse from the stables at will, granting him a very low base attack time and unmatched speed. A spare horse will run to the knight upon calling for a mount (or run back when dismounting).
