Closed poleyns

The poleyn was a component of Medieval and Renaissance armor that protected the knee. During the transition from mail armor to plate armor, this was among the earliest plate components to develop. They first appeared in the mid-thirteenth century and remained in use until the early seventeenth century when firearms made them obsolete. They hung from the Fauld.

The specifics of poleyn design varied considerably over that period. The earliest poleyns were strapped over mail chausses. Late fourteenth century and early fifteenth century poleyns usually attached to padded leggings with leather buckles and incorporated goussets. During the fifteenth century poleyns developed an articulated construction that attached to the cuisses and schynbalds or greaves. A characteristic of late fifteenth century gothic armor was a projection that guarded the side of the knee.
