Entrance to the Black Knights' Fortress
The Black Knights' Fortress is the main stronghold of the Black Knights, or "Kinshra" - a Zamorakian military group. The Black Knights built the fortress near Ice Mountain around the same time as the White Knights' Castle was created. It's likely they built it as high as they could for strategic reasons, and also to be 'above' the White Knights who are their direct opposition.
The fortress is a key part of the quest The Death of Chivalry. You also visit the fortress during King's Ransom. Prior to completing of The Death of Chivalry, the fortress 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's armour - a black knight captain disguise.
- A full set of dagon'hai robes - a Dagon'hai disguise.
After the quest you can also teleport into the ritual chamber on the third floor of the fortress using the skull of remembrance. You will still need to be in disguise to walk through the front gate, however!
The Black Knights' Fortress can be found on the edge of the Wilderness, north-west of Edgeville Monastery. You do not have to go through the Wilderness to access it however, as a drawbridge has been let down near the Monastery, by which 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 centre 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 catacombs under the Fortress (used in While Guthix Sleeps) may be found via the cellar trapdoor in the south-west tower room, near the entrance.
There is a staircase in the north-western tower which leads up to the first floor.

When you reach the first floor you'll enter the kitchens and adjoining store rooms. There are some slaves here that you can speak to should you wish.
The room to the east of the kitchen is the banquet hall where a number of black knights and elite black knights are waiting for food or just passing the time.
South of the banquet hall is a slave quarters and an armoury either side of the corridor. You can view the outside of the fortress via a balcony if you go through the armoury on the east side (the door to the quarters on the west side is locked). There is a pitch bucket here but it is empty.
The staircase to the next floor is in the south-east tower.

The second floor houses a number of elite black knights, with several personal quarters either side of the corridor running through the centre of the room. There is a combat training room to the north-west with a locked treasury next to it. There is a staircase in the north-west corner of the combat room up to the third floor.
To the far north you'll find Captain Dulcin's chambers which houses a number of items that you can examine.
The third floor is the best place to kill black knights as there are plenty of them patrolling the battlements.
Also on the third floor is a small ritual chamber, which you can teleport directly to by using the 'Teleport' option on the skull of remembrance.
There is a portal, which leads to the Tomb of the Fallen, in the north-east corner of the room. There is also a wardrobe, a shelf, a grimoire, a box of candles and a coal box that you can search within this room. In addition to this there is a bank chest.
There are no quests that can be started in the Black Knights' Fortress.
