- This article is about the theme. For other, see Knights' Kingdom (Disambiguation).
A second theme also called Knights' Kingdom was released in 2004, but there was no connection between these two sub-themes other than the general medieval-like setting and a conflict between good and evil.
The Knights' Kingdom line of 2000 signaled a return to a more traditional interpretation of European-style castles after the end of the oriental-themed Ninja. The Knights were led by King Leo. The king and his forces were pitted against an army of barbarian invaders commanded by Cedric the Bull. The royal faction owned just one castle, while the Bulls did not have a castle but instead a wide variety of siege engines.
This was the first Castle theme that featured a complete royal family with King Leo, his wife, Queen Leonora, and his daughter, Princess Storm, who wanted to be a knight. King Leo's castle and grounds were decorated with new carved lion head bricks and ornate stained glass window pieces, while Cedric's fearsome battle machines were equipped with spring-loaded projectile launchers.
The minifigures of this theme were elaborately designed and featured many new torso pieces, faces, more realistic helmets and armour pieces. The buildings, however, had a rather simplified design, which was also seen in other themes of that era, e.g. in Town Jr., a building style later called Juniorization.
- Knights' Kingdom was featured in 5774 LEGO Island 2 (The Brickster's Revenge).
- Sets of this series influenced the first line of sets in the Knights' Kingdom II series.
- Cedric the Bull and King Leo are the two sons of the King of the Royal Knights - the Royal King.
