Actually Richard doesn’t matter that much with troop types, although he’s an Infantry commander. None of his skills point towards infantry units and his infantry talent tree isn’t used that much unless you want to brawl with him in the open field (and there you shouldn’t use him as the primary commander so his talents aren’t important). If you defend with him you will have mixed troops anyway.
Best Commander Pairing for Richard
Alexander the Great works really great and both commanders will have great synergy of shielding effects (not, they won’t overlap) and make your march stay alive much longer. Yi-Seong Gye (YSG) along Richard will be an extremely effective city defense setup. Charles Martel is still super strong, with Richard primary providing his treats like heal and larger marches and Charles providing his shield. They are a huge mountain to beat along each other and withstand a ton. Sun Tzu provides a ton of rage and also decent damage and pairing them with each other has sustain but also damage. Joan of Arc as a great epic support commander can also be an option along Richard.
