Certificate of Origin and Quality. Made in Toledo.

The Order of Calatrava was one of the four Spanish military orders and the first military order founded in Castile, but the second to receive papal approval. The papal bull confirming the Order of Calatrava was given by Pope Alexander III on September 26, 1164. Most of the political and military power of the order dissipated by the end of the 15th century, but the last dissolution of the order's property did not occur until 1838.

A shield is a type of personal armor, meant to intercept attacks, or redirecting a hit from a Sword mace, battle axe.

Shields vary greatly in size and in thickness ranging from large panels that protect the user's whole body to small models that were intended for hand-to-hand-combat use.

In prehistory and during the era of the earliest civilizations, shields were made of wood, animal hide, woven reeds or wicker

In the Middle Ages, timber, leather or rawhide and often reinforced with a metal boss, rim or banding.

They were carried by foot soldiers, knights and cavalry.

Shields could be round, oval, square, rectangular, triangular.

The shield was held by a central grip or by straps that went over or around the user's arm.

Often shields were decorated with a painted pattern or an animal representation to identify their army or clan. These designs developed into systematized heraldic devices during the High Middle Ages for purposes of battlefield identification.
