Age of Empires Series Wiki

Alexander Nevski is a cavalry hero found in the Scenario Editor in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors. He is based on Alexander Yaroslavich Nevsky (1221-1263) who is commonly regarded as a key figure of the Kievan Rus. Alexander Nevski is best known for achieving legendary status on the account of his military victories over German and Swedish invaders while agreeing to pay tribute to the powerful Golden Horde. As a hero, Alexander Nevski cannot be converted and can regenerate health.

Alexander Nevski is represented by a Cavalier but with better armor and hit points. Like other cavalry, Alexander Nevski is affected by all upgrades that affect cavalry as well as any other bonuses that affect them.


  • Despite being introduced in The Conquerors, Alexander Nevski is shown with a The Age of Kings icon in the Scenario Editor.
