Poorly trained, but well equipped cavalry who fight with a sword.
The rich as well as the poor must do their civic duty, but the rich prefer to ride. The wealth brought by trade allows merchants to equip themselves with horses and the finest armour available. However, they lack the training and elan of real knights and should not be relied on too far in battle
