Protected by plate armour and equipped with maces, these knights for hire excel at taking on heavily armoured companies.
These are knights from the Holy Roman Empire that have chosen to fight for money. Wearing plate armour, and equipped with maces, as well as lances, these trained and experienced knights are a good choice for taking on other heavily armoured companies. Although excellent shock soldiers, they do have a strong interest in personal survival.
Mercenary German Knights are available after 1380.
