Chivalry is a unique campaign mechanic for Bretonnia, introduced in Total War: Warhammer.

Description[edit | edit source]

Brt Amber.png Chivalry is shared across your entire faction. It can be gained from winning battles, with greater victories (eg: Heroic victory vs Pyrrhic victory) granting more chivalry. Chivalry can be lost when performing unchivalrous actions such as sacking settlements and raiding provinces. Your Lord's character traits also have a large impact on your faction's overall Chivalry level.

When your faction reaches certain levels of chivalry, they will gain access to The Green Knight, a unique hero unit who lasts a limited number of turns. However this can only be done a maximum of 4 times in Total War: Warhammer, but as of the Doomsayers Update in Total War: Warhammer II, the Green Knight can be summoned an unlimited number of times when at max chivalry.
