The Matilda Knights (マチルダ騎士団, Machiruda Kishidan) are a military order that appears in Suikoden II.
The Matilda Knights were founded in SY 280 with the financial support of Muse City. Initially a defense force to protect Muse City from invasion from the Highland Kingdom, it would become an independent body of its own in 294 and was a founding member of the City-State of Jowston in 314.
It would be the largest military force in the City-State and wielded considerable influence due to this. During the Dunan Unification War, the head of the knights, Gorudo, refused several times to fight in battles against the Highland Army, ultimately causing many knights to resign and fight with the New State Army.
The knights are split into three divisions; the Red, Blue and White Knights. These orders also represent a pyramidal hierarchy with the White Knights on top and the Red and Blue Knights on the bottom.
