Valiant wesnothian knights are pride of the Royal Army and reliance of the monarchy. Every knight buys horse and equipment at his own expense, so some of them spend as much money as would be enough for equipment of pikemen company. But knight isn't just mounted warrior in expensive armor - knights are unmatched in skills and their valor is legendary. Of course they are not flawless but sometimes resolve, patriotism and desire for glory overpower any of objective factors. If Wesnoth had more knights, it wouldn't have need in other kinds of troops at all - so, at the Golden Age сommoners were serving at garrisons only with twenty thousand knights army performed all offensive operations. In our time there are not so much knights, but that doesn't mean we have lost best of them.
