Roles? collecting taxes, keeping the peasants at his property in line, showing up to fight if requested.
Armour? heavy leather and chainmail in the early middle ages up to full plated armour in the late middle ages, try to look up paintings at the net, e.g. maximilian of Bavaria (the last Knight).
Weapons: Sword, Dagger, Morningstar, Lance and no nay never a unknightly crossbow.
Thats a type of answer I wanted.
what did you need to know about armour?
Well, ive been reading from some books and it says that in the 14th century Knights wore a mixture of chain mail and plate mail. So I guess like, if the armour was very well decorated, different types of armour they would have worn [Like, versions of plate and chain mail], stuff like that.
