    In a land you have Royal Knights and you have Filthy Thieves, Knights ALWAYS speak the truth and Thieves ALWAYS lie!

    Person A sais to Person B: 'At least one of us is a thief'

    What can you now say about A and B?

    It was a royal knight speaking from a pairing of a royal knight and a filthy thief. If there had been two royal knights, a knight couldn't make that statement as it wouldn't be true. A thief couldn't make a statement admiting that either one or two of the pairing were thieves as that would be a true statement.
    Correct?
