"Now they sprang forward, formed, quickened to a gallop, and charged with a great shout. And from the walls an answering shout went up; for foremost on the field rode the swan-knights of Dol Amroth with their Prince and his blue banner at their head."
The Return of the King

The Knights of Dol Amroth are heroic cavalry who fight for Gondor. They can only be trained once Prince Imrahil has been recruited. Only 3 battalions of Knights of Dol Amroth may be on the field at the same time. They are able to grant Gondor Knights and other allied cavalry an attack bonus. They valiantly defended Minas Tirith from the armies of Mordor during the War of the Ring.

Strategy

As Gondor's heroic cavalry, the Knights of Dol Amroth are mainly used in the late game once the player has built the Border Stronghold, recrutied Imrahil and has enough money for the Knights. However, they are quite powerful to compensate for how difficult they are to recruit. Shattering Rush​ should be used whenever the Knights fight any large force of units to ensure that they don't slow down in the middle of the clump. This can be especially useful against units like Isengard's Shield Bearers who make cavalry slow down a lot faster. It can also allow them to break out of an enemy army if they are surrounded. ​Inspiration​ allows them to be partnered with Gondor knights by improving their skills. Although ​Into the Battle​ is very hard to reach, it can be very useful when fighting pikemen, heroes or other heroic units.
