Armand d'Aquitaine is a Bretonnia melee infantry unit. The bravest of the brave, the noble Lords of Bretonnia will fight for the Lady until the bitter, bloody end.
While this unit is in the game's files, he is not implemented and cannot be obtained in any way. He does appear in the Season of Revelation mini-campaign as the leader of the Aquitaine faction, but since you can only play as Wood Elves in that campaign, he cannot be recruited.
Bretonnian Lords are powerful nobles whose deeds are recounted throughout the land, even by mighty earls, barons and the dukes themselves. Proud and powerful warriors all, Bretonnian Lords are excellent warrior-generals. Most of the Lords of Bretonnia were dukes of noble stock, such as Duke Behemond "Beastslayer" of Bastonne, and Theodoric of Brionne. They claim shared ancestry with the first Bretonnian King, Gilles le Breton, and many purport that their founders fought alongside him in his many battles. Lords are important and powerful figures both in the military and political world of Bretonnia, often trading sword and shield for cup and words in the halls of power; to play the game and advance their cause.
Armand was the younger brother of the last Duke of Aquitaine and never expected to inherit. As a Knight Errant, he was famed for both his recklessness and his luck, and he refused all offers of a fief until King Louen Leoncoeur himself offered him a place in the royal household. Again, Armand distinguished himself with feats of valour, most notably slaying the Bestigor Darmal the Crooked in single combat. Many expected him to be given a barony and probably appointed Marquis.
Instead, after only two years, he set off to seek the Grail. He quested in disguise and has not spoken of his activities since his return. A few minstrels are trying to piece his movements together, but he is not the only Questing Knight to hide his identity. On his return as a Grail Knight, he was made the Standard Bearer of Bretonnia. The position suited him perfectly. Armand d'Aquitaine won the honour of bearing this holy and venerable banner by beating all other contending Knights in the great Tournament of Couronne. He guarded the banner night and day within the Grail Chapel of Couronne, using only his shield as a pillow.
Three years ago, the Duke of Aquitaine died, and by royal command, Armand was declared heir to the position. He is still finding his feet as an administrator and he has a strong desire to solve problems personally.
