What armor the Templars didn’t wear


This chap has made a very beautiful video and credit to him for admitting that though he calls it a Templar suit of armor – it’s of course incorrect.  The main no-no is the plate armour.  This kind of suit of armour developed decades after the dissolution of the Templar Order and the burning to death of its leaders.  It’s basically a suit of armour from the fifteenth or sixteenth century and not the twelfth or thirteenth.  But as he says – that would have been chain mail and less fun for him to film and make.  Still – nice video – enjoy!
