Did You Know?

The burgonet helmet is the successor to the previously worn sallet which was much the same but without the hinged earpieces and extended peak over the eyes.


A burgonet is a light, open helmet characterized by a peak, a fall over the eyes, and hinged earpieces. Used by cavalry in the 1500s and 1600s, they were sometimes worn with a buffe, a separate detachable element that protected the face and throat not covered by the burgonet.
