Medieval Knight Riding Into Battle on Destrier War HorsePN# 8553
The Medieval knight was one of three types of fighting men during the Middle Ages: Knights, Foot Soldiers, and Archers. The knight was covered in multiple layers of armor, and could pass through other soldiers that were standing in his way. Knights were also the wealthiest of soldiers.
Knights covered their bodies with plates of metal for protection. Plates of metal covered their chests, back, arms, and legs. A bucket like helmet protected the knights head and had a hinged metal visor. A knight also carried a shield to hold in front of him during battle. The shields were made of wood or metal. Knights decorated their shields with their family emblem or crest.
The Destrier war horse was mainly used in the medieval era to carry knights into battle. A large horse was preferred to increase the power of a lance strike and for the knight to be able to vault onto his horse in full armor.
