Present throughout history, horned helmets have always been popular among knights. They were particularly popular in tournaments.
You’d think these impractical adornments would stay out of a battlefield but that wasn’t the case.
Be it respect to gods or to pay tribute to one’s Coat of Arms, they sure were stylish.
Once a year, during the celebration of the “Complete Pummelling of the Enemy and Glorification of our Peaceful Kingdom” or “Glory Day” for short, one youth is selected from all the children to don the “Eternal Armor” said to have belonged to the saviour of the people himself!
It’s impossible to find the information if it was indeed a child hero or a very short person, but it’s now an honour reserved to the very best boys and girls.
We would love to know how the selection process happens… maybe a pageant? Is everyone required to be of a specific height? What about growth spurts?
Squires were unfortunate young souls who had to deal with grumpy knights who wanted their armor on in less than twenty seconds. Well, we supposed that’s not entirely true but we wanted to portray a poor boy on his first day of being a squire and having to deal with a rather hot-blooded knight. We’ll be cheering him on and hoping he gets to be a Page someday! Please don’t kill him, Sir Taurus.
