Need More Info A lot of my troops don’t show up at sieges

Summary: I am playing on Xbox One. I am pretty new to Mount and Blade Bannerlord and I am having the hardest time capturing any castle. My current problem is that while I have the numbers to capture the castle I am attacking if my whole party is present, I can’t seem to figure out how to make them all show up. I am attacking a castle that has 117 defenders, my force is 139, I am attacking on my own. However, only 69 of my troops are present. This puts me at a disadvantage. I have seen many posts talking about battle size restrictions, which I sort of understand from a performance perspective, but this battle is small compared with some of the others I have participated in. When I have helped other lords attack castles, they have hundreds on the field and the defenders have hundreds, then reinforcements still show up for both sides as troops are lost. It feels like the game is designed to make it as difficult as possible to own a castle. Even if I win this battle, I won’t hold the castle because an enemy army went way out of their way to come get me despite being at war with another faction. Can anyone tell me how I can field more troops at castles? Note: it is only at castles that I have this problem.
Don’t know what graphics mode I’m on.
How to Reproduce: Play on Xbox One X, do a siege attack with a little over 100 men without support.

What is the preferred graphics mode? The amount of units in the battle field is tied to the graphics mode due to performance limitations. You can check it out on the options menu.
