Foltest and his Army

The Temerian Army is the ground force of Temeria, forming its largest military component. During its turbulent history, Temerian soldiers had crossed their weapons with many foes however mostly with the Royal Redanian Army, due to a rivalry between the two monarchies.[1][2][3] Its core consisted of infantry units from cities like Vizima and Maribor as well as cold-blooded professional Landsknechts, whom cavalry could not frighten.[4] Although generic foot soldiers usually drafted from villages and cities during times of war were in highest number, a goodly number of knights and influential nobles like Count Daniel Etcheverry of Garramone served in the army, often leading detachments.

Gathered under black flags aspersed with silver lilies, they also fought in Northern Wars. When Cintra was taken over, King Foltest not only accepted Cintrian refugees but also allowed them to create voluntary troops that numbered around eight thousand, with golden lions on azure flags, led by Marshal Vissegerd.[5] During a huge Battle of Brenna, twelve thousand brave Temerian and Redanian infantrymen formed the heart of Northern Kingdoms' might.[4]

As its common in royal army contingents, Temeria utilizes several siege engines including Trebuchets, Catapults, Ballistae, Siege towers and Battering rams.[6]
