The Knight Lord (ロードナイト Rōdo naito, lit. Lord Knight in the Japanese versions) is a combat physical class that is introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. One of many promoted forms of the Lord class, the Knight Lord class is most notable for the addition of a mount. The Knight Lord class, much as the preceding Lord class does, wields Swords as its primary weapon of choice, but also gains the secondary ability to arm lances.
While the Knight Lord class does not appear in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, there is unused data for it in the game. Unusually, it is able to wield Staves when unmounted, at the cost of losing the ability to use Lances.
The class reappears in The Blazing Blade, again as the promoted class of main character Eliwood's Lord class. It retains the ability to wield both Swords and Lances.
