|“||Quick-training, Spearman who quickly loses hitpoints, becoming less effective over time.||”|
The Levied Spearman is a melee heavy infantry in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition - The African Royals that is unique to African civilizations (Ethiopians and Hausa). It is similar to the Minuteman, Warrior, and Sentry, but attacks in melee and does well against cavalry, similar to a Pikeman.
Levied Spearmen quickly lose hit points over time, which only stops when they have only 1 hit point remaining. Any damage taken after that will kill them, making them almost useless once this occurs.
Levied Spearmen are a good tool for quickly defending Town Centers and also useful in temporary battles or to react quickly to an immediate crisis. They are also effective in large infantry armies due to their good attack and being protected by the numbers around them.
The Levied Spearman is automatically upgraded in every Age up from the Fortress Age.
- Elite Levied Spearman (+25% hit points and attack)
- Champion Levied Spearman (+25% hit points and attack)
- Legendary Levied Spearman (+50% hit points and attack)

|“||Among larger African societies, the majority of military forces were levies organized within individual villages in a pseudo-feudal system. The Hut's ability to call levies represents that system and reflects the reality that, while numerous, levies were not necessarily the most effective troops on an individual basis.||”|
