#REDIRECT [[At-Arms]]
Historically, a man-at-arms was a fighter employed by an army, lord, or individual knights.  In Amtgard, men-at-arms are roughly analogous to [[page|pages]], in that they are taken by [[Squire|squires]].  Although this is theoretically a mentor-student type relationship, there are a multitude of reasons that a squire might take a man-at-arms.
Men and Women at Arms wear a black [[Belt|belt]]. In some Kingdoms this is further established  with silver trim but many places don't require or use it.
===In Amtgard===
Everything about men-at-arms is custom, so there are no hard and fast rules.
===The difference between a Man at arms and a [[page]]:===
Officially, there is no difference, as neither is officially recognized in the Order of Precedence or most [[Corpora]]s.  Some kingdoms define a man-at-arms as some one who fights, while a page is a non-combatant.  Some kingdoms eschew one in favor of the other.  Some kingdoms allow squires to take a man-at-arms, and a [[noble]] to take a page.  In some places, children too young to fight are pages, while everyone else is a man-at-arms.
