History[edit]

The Fourteenth Robinson Chevaliers was one of the regiments within the Robinson Chevaliers brigade of the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns and took its unit name from a chivalric order that existed during the pre-industrial history of Terra; this was standard practise amongst units of the Robinson Chevaliers that formed prior to the massive expansion of the AFFS following the repeal of the Council Edict of 2650[2] in 2752.[3] In the case of the Fourteenth the regiment was known as "The Thistle Keepers"; members of the Fourteenth identified closely with their chosen order, and even the newest recruits were expected to be able to name significant individuals and events from the history of the order.[2]

Badly damaged during the First Succession War, the Fourteenth had rebuilt to a little more than full strength by the beginning of the Second Succession War; this failed to save the Fourteenth, which was destroyed during the Second Succession War.[1]
