2 in stock
Description of the Product
Morion helmets were common during the 16th and 17th century and although the helmet is usually identified with the Spanish conquistadors these helmets were commonly used throughout Europe. Morion originated from Spain and was typically used by infantry, even though it was seen from time to time used by the cavalry also. Infantry using pikes (long spears), wearing morions and breastplates and organized into a phalanx (formation type) dominated battlefields for more than a hundred years all across Europe and morion is known in some places (ie. England) better as the pikeman’s pot. Pike phalanx was used initially as a single unit but as guns were developing and used more and more on the battlefields the phalanx was used to protect the musketeers, whose weapons were inaccurate and slow to reload.
