13 century European armour in colours of the English royal house


Brigandine was undoubtedly the most popular armour in the XIV century. It was a sort of transition stage from chain armour to full-plate armour. Its special feature was metal plates sewed or clinched to a cloth or leather foundation. The plates were attached on the inside.

On the presented piece of brigandine there is a metal plate on the outside of the armour which chains going up to the helmet. In this way additional protection for the chest was sometimes created in the Middle Ages. An outside helmet – topfhelm was attached by the chains. such helmet was bulky, limited vision and hardened breathing. This is why after the spear attack topfhelm was being taken off and the knight stayed in a smaller helmet - bascinet, in which it was easier to fight closely. Sometimes sword was also attached by chains.
