The Knights

The Knights





In the Middle Ages, protective clothing for battle and weapons were important.

The Knights were protected with full suits of plate armor, made of metal plates, which were very heavy and difficult to move in. Knights in armor who fell off their horses were unable to run away. The sword was the most important knightly weapon.




The war horse was decorated with a cover and displayed the heraldic arms and was padded for extra protection. He had a shield and a lance.
