The Rytieri Rozpolení (lit. Halved Knights or Bisected Knights), commonly referred to dimunitively as the Rytieri, Rytieriroz or RR, were a majority Ostrozavan Alban pan-nationalist far-right political movement founded in 1913, during the First Party Compact. Commonly seen as an intellectual and societal backlash to the popular Crimson Revolution of 1909, the Rytieriroz promoted a Pan-Alban identity under a centralized dictatorial government, and a restoration of Alban influence to the Lake Kupalnitsa area and beyond. Its associated ideology of Rytierism was both antifabrianistic and antisocialistic, while also rejecting the Karminian movement of the deposed Ostrozavan Vykopal dynasty. While hostile to the majority of Belisarian monarchies, especially the Western Monarchies, the Rytieriroz were nevertheless sympathetic to Bolsarism. Though headed by a succession of leaders, the Rytieriroz and Rytierism are commonly associated with their founder, Koloman Lenved.
Though politically disenfranchised their entire existence by strict laws originally created to prevent the re-emergence of Ostrozavan monarchy, the Rytieriroz nevertheless had over six hundred thousand members at their height, and acted in a limited capacity during the Drevstranese Civil War. Declared a terrorist movement in 1922, the Rytieriroz were not seriously pursued as such until the administration of Emil Torje, whose Socialist Worker's Party is commonly considered to have rose to power amid serious fears about the rise of the Ostrozavan Far-Right under the First Party Compact. The Rytieriroz were summarily hunted down starting in 1928, being erased from history books by the administrations of Torje and Alek Dalibor. The Progressive Third Party Compact reintroduced the legacy of the Rytieri into the public eye; they are viewed as an important test of Ostrozavan instutions in modern Ostrozavan historiography.
