Fellahin Icon
Fellahin are a type of melee infantry in Empire: Total War.


A sword is an honourable weapon for any warrior. The man who carries one must demonstrate this courage if he is to cut down his foe.

Although a sword, no matter what its design, may appear outdated next to a musket, it has one great advantage: it never needs loading. A truly skilled swordsman will never want for employment, and he is an intimidating sight to many regular musket-armed soldiers.

Units of swordsmen are also easier to handle tactically on a battlefield. A general does not have to make fine judgements about when to hold or give fire: he need only send his men forward to do their killing work at the right time. Once committed, they will keep fighting until death or victory comes.

General InformationEdit

They are recruitable in the provinces of Mesopotamia.


Persia has few Fellahin units at the start of the campaign, though actually it can't recruit them.
