The swordsman is the strongest non-Lord unit in Stronghold and Stronghold Crusader, rivaled only by the knight.

Due to his outfit, he cannot dig, nor fill in the moat or scale ladders.

Swordsmen require a free peasant from the campfire, 1 sword, and 1 metal armour from the armoury with a sum of 40 gold to recruit.
