Later Teutonic Order - 1410 AD onwards

This list represents the Teutonic Order fighting in the Baltic in the 15th century. It covers the period when the armies of the Order start to decline dramatically after the disaster at Tannenburg. It takes up from 1410AD and ends at the end of the Age of Chivalry period. The low number of Kn/MAA represents the lack of enthusiasm for crusading of the C15th, hence the recruiting problems of the late period Teutonic order and also the fall in true Brethren numbers. The +3 PROT represents the large scale introduction of plate armor for rider and mount.

MAA are lesser Brethren, Crusaders or allies.

HC with lance are Order Sergeants, Danish or German Crusaders or even allied Poles which supplimented the declining numbers of true Brethren.

HC with X-bow are Knechtes or Order X-bowmen. They would normally be fielded dismounted and do not receive impetus when fighting mounted.

Estate Levy represent the native Baltic population forcibly enslaved on the Orders estates. It is not clear exactly how the Levy fought as contemporary chronicles state wildly differing accounts of their performance on the battle field. If any Levy are bought all must be bought and all must be fielded in a single division. Estate Levy are classified as key to stop them being used as a throw-away screen on the table-top, which was not how they were deployed historically

If LI (Estate Levy) are not fielded, they do not count towards the requirement for the extra Light Division.

Later Teutonic armies used sledge mounted bombards (for winter campaigns).
