Cavalry in Age of Empires are one of the four combat forces on land, the other ones being infantry, archers, and siege weapons. Cavalry are mounted soldiers.

General information[edit | edit source]

Cavalry can be split into three different sections: ranged cavalry, hand cavalry and siege cavalry. For information about ranged cavalry, see the archer units article. Hand and siege cavalry can be built at the Stable from the Tool Age onward.

Attack and armor upgrades are available at the Storage Pit, while Nobility is researched at the Government Center.
