The cavalier is the sixth-level creature of the Castle faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the training grounds. The cavalier can be upgraded to the champion.

The horse-mounted cavalier and champion deal extra impact damage (+5% per hex traveled to creature attacked) when charging into battle.OffBck

With the extra damage added for charging, the cavalier is best suited for an aggressive playstyle, charging ahead to strike down its targets. If the cavalier is already adjacent to its target, running around it will still count as distance traveled, and increase the damage dealt.


  • Bringing cavaliers to stables on the world map will upgrade them to champions for free.
  • Tyris is a specialist in cavaliers, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level.
