Armet, German type was developed in the 15th century, most likely in Italy, France, Spain and Hungary. It was distinguished by being the first helmet of its era to completely enclose the head while being compact and light enough to move with the wearer.
This Armet, German type is made either in standard size or exactly on measure. In that case please fill in the following measurement chart after finishing your order.
The Armet, German type consists of four pieces: the skull, the two hinged cheek guards which lock at the front, and the visor. A reinforcement for the bottom half of the face, known as a wrapper, can be added. Its straps attached to a metal disc at the base of the skull piece called a rondel.
Armets reached their height of popularity during the 15th and 16th centuries when knights in medieval Europe wore plate armor into battle. Movable face and cheek guards allowed the wearer to close the helmet, thus fully protecting the head from blows. The armet, German type was most popular in Italy, and in Hungary as it was the first kingdom in Europe after Italy to inherit the Renaissance during the reign of Matthias Corvinus of Hungary.
This helmet can be made to measure after your measurements ‘1a’ to ‘1j’ in this measurement chart.
