Heh, all these plebeians. I'd simply die from embarrassment if any kin of mine showed up to a tournament wearing these commoner's helmets.

I like the viking helmets. They look really cool and the horns for nobles and elite warriors make them look even cooler.

Çiçek(flower) helmet-Spahi wore these

Janissary Börk

I dont know how fictional these Japanese helmets are but if they are real wow!

I learnt about these Cuman-Kypchak helmets thanks to the Bannerlord Cpt mode videos(Khuzaits) they also look good.

These Roman helmets really give the impression of professionalism though !

One of my favorite's definity has to be the late medieval sallet. My favorite helmet of all time is the sallet of Boabdil (Muhammad XII). It's an utterly beautiful piece of art. I think it looks absolutely heroic



I also love ancient Greek helmets, especially the Trojan/Corinthian types with the plumes on top.


I also really like this style. It's quite similar but it's more open in the facial area with the two parts protruding from the helmet and covering the cheeks.

Both are 13th to 14th century, Mongol styles
associated with Ilkhanids and the Golden Horde...

similar piece of armor from the 15th century...

(click to show/hide)

The oldest record of full facial masks in the middle east goes back as far
as the Greek Seleucid empire, worn mostly by heavy cavalry as well
as Galatian charioteers. Such armor was later adopted by Parthian,
Palmyran, and Armenian cataphracts , then later by Sassanian savarans...

(click to show/hide)

The masked helmets worn by Kipchaks and Cumans itself may have
been adopted from the Middle East, as part of the probable artistic revival
of Persian Sassanian elements. This is also evident in literature such as the
Shahnemeh and even the 1001 Nights (Shahryar was a fictional Sassanid King!) 

(click to show/hide)

Such examples would possibly influence Russian and
other Eurasian styles, connected throughout the silk road...

(click to show/hide)

Pechenegs, Kipchacks ad Cumans would therefore be expected
to adopt and merge both Persian and Slavic styles while also
developing their own artistic preferences...

(click to show/hide)

Similar forms of cultural exchange continued up until the 17th century.
This may explain why many Russian and Polish helmets resemble
those used by the Mamluks, Ottomans and Safavids...
