Roland the Knight is a Castle hero.

He is not an original Restoration of Erathia hero, but was added in Armageddon's Blade and is also available in Shadow of Death.

By default, Roland is not playable, but he may be enabled in custom scenarios in the map editor.

Story[edit]

Roland as he appears in Heroes II.

Appearances[edit]

Armageddon's Blade
Return of the King as a player hero.
To Kill A Hero as a player hero.
Oblivion's Edge as a player hero.

Specialty[edit]

Roland's specialty is bugged. It does not give bonuses to Swordsmen, only to Crusaders. (This bug has been fixed in Horn of the Abyss Horn of the Abyss).

The in-game description "Increases the Attack and Defense skills of any Swordsmen or Crusaders for each level attained after 4th level." is erroneous in "each level attained" moment, and lacks the speed bonus information. (Description is fixed in HotA Horn of the Abyss).

Unlike the native terrain speed bonus, the creature specialty speed bonus can affect the hero's movement points in case the creature is the slowest one in the army.

King Roland is an exact copy of Sorsha the Knight, except he has Armorer secondary skill instead of Offense.
