Liked the arrangement of the 1st one.
Although it sounds almost like a chamber size reverb you used on it. Would like to hear a bigger sound in a bigger space.
0:36 good strings entering
Also, I see you are persisting with the graphic. The horse is oversized, and makes the knight look hobbit-sized.
Anyway, back to the music : )
Marching, some nice ethnic instruments added.
Knighthood, you are missing in general the very lower octave strings/brass. This will make your compositions sound bigger. Even seasons pros like Christian Henson adds a sub bass below the low octave strings.
Conquest, good, felt like it had a story to tell
Knights death, liked it also, music seemed to fit the title well and could be used in a cinematic track

Overall, good. But I feel your tracks are lacking in sonic depth. Exploring the lower octaves and getting a good reverb might be helpful. (VSS3 is a good one, Fabfilter Pro R too)
