Each Location guard type corresponds to a group of thematically related units. The actual number, level, and unity type of the guards will be chosen depending on how far the location is from the closest stronghold of a Master, which is indicated by the Ring column in the table below. Location guards in the capital province have the same strength as those in ring 1 provinces. If you are looking for hireable guards who are assigned as province defenders, see Guards. If you are looking for information on the units guarding neutral provinces, see Neutral Provinces.

The strength of location guards is not fixed firmly to their ring, and can sometimes vary by +1 or -1. These outliers are not accounted for in the table below.
