The Duke Knight (デュークナイト Dyūku naito) is a horse-mounted combat physical class for that appears exclusively in the Jugdral Series of Fire Emblem Series. The promoted form of the Lance Knight, Duke Knights are armed with Lances as their primary weapon of choice, and are also switch to Swords when dismounted in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776.

History in the SeriesEdit

In its original inception in Genealogy of the Holy War, the Duke Knight class is introduced as the promoted form of the Lance Knight class, wielding Lances as its sole weapon of choice.

In Thracia 776, the Duke Knight class, like all other mounted classes, is forced to dismount from its steed in indoor chapters. When dismounted, Duke Knights lose the ability to wield Lances and are locked to wielding Swords instead.

The Duke Knight class is retired from the series thereafter, its role taken up by the Paladin and Lance Paladin classes in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn respectively.



In Genealogy of the Holy War, Duke Knights have much higher Strength than Paladins, but their Skill and Speed are slightly lower. They can attain an A rank in Lance proficiency.

In Thracia 776, Duke Knights are outclassed by Paladins in every way because of a new weapon rank system, both classes having the same stat caps, and the dismounting feature makes them both switch exclusively to swords dismounted.
