History[edit]

The Ninth 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 Ninth the regiment was known as the "Swordsmen of Honor"; members of the Ninth 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]

The Ninth was one of the fifteen regiments of Robinson Chevaliers to be destroyed during the First Succession War.[1]
