  • This is a very nice helmet used by the Knights of Medieval Europe who protected their land.

    By the ninth century, many knights and nobles held estates (fiefs) granted by greater lords in return for military and other service. This feudal system enabled a cash-poor but land-rich lord to support a military force. But this was not the only way that land was held, knights maintained, and loyalty to a lord retained. Lands could be held unconditionally, landless knights could be sheltered in noble households, and loyalties could be maintained through kinship, friendship, or wages.

    Mounted armored warriors, or knights, were the dominant forces of medieval armies. At first, most knights were of humble origins, some of them not even possessing land, but by the later twelfth century knights were considered members of the nobility and followed a system of courteous knightly behavior called chivalry. During and after the fourteenth century, weapons that were particularly effective against horsemen appeared on the battlefield, such as the longbow, pike, halberd, and cannon. Yet despite the knights' gradual loss of military importance, the system by which noble families were identified, called heraldry, continued to flourish and became more complex. The magnificence of their war games—called tournaments—also increased, as did the number of new knightly orders, such as the Order of the Garter.

    Height of this helmet is 14 1/2" and the width from front to back is 14" It also features gold trim for accent and is made of stainless steel.

    Handle Material: Stainless Steel
