[show/hide]
The Black Knights' Fortress is the main stronghold of the Kinshra - a Zamorakian military group. The Black Knights built the fortress near Ice Mountain around the same time as the White Knight Castle was created. They will have built it high as they could for strategic reasons, and also to be 'above' the White Knights who are their direct opposition. It's likely they built the fortress walls as high as possible so as to keep an eye on the White Knights from a tall vantage point.


The Black Knights are ostensibly a crusading force rather than a defensive one, and they will use the Fortress to send out forays into Asgarnia, lynch people in the Wilderness, etc.

The fortress is a key part of the quest The Death of Chivalry. You also visit the fortress during King's Ransom. It cannot be entered unless you are wearing the following outfits:

  • a bronze helm and iron chainbody - a fortress guard disguise.
  • a full set of black armour (and any of its variants) - a Black Knight disguise.
  • a full set of elite black armour - a Black Knight lieutenant disguise.
  • a full set of black knight captain armour - a Black Knight captain disguise.
  • a full set of Dagon'hai robes - a Dagon'hai disguse.

Location of the Black Knights' Fortress

The Black Knights' Fortress can be found in The Wilderness, north-west of Edgeville Monastery. You do not have to go through the Wilderness to access it however, as a draw bridge has been let down near the Monastery where you can access the fortress safely.

You can get there easily by teleporting to the Edgeville lodestone and walking north-west.

The ground floor houses a number of Black Knights, two barracks either side of the corridor running through the center of the room, and a torture chamber to the north-west.

Within the torture chamber, there is an iron maiden on the north wall which you can prick your finger on, if you wish. There is also a locked door on the east wall which bars entrance to a set of stairs leading down to the prison used in the King's Ransom quest. The statue of King Arthur (and access to the White Guthix Sleeps catacombs under the Fortress) are accessed from the cellar door in the south-west tower on the ground floor, near the entrance.

You'll find Lieutenant York guarding the corridor but he will not speak to you, nor block your path. You can speak to him during The Death of Chivalry quest, however.

There is a staircase in the north-western tower up to the first floor.
