Possibly the last royal armor made in Europe
This is one of a set of twelve matching armors for use in foot combat commissioned in 1591 by Sophie of Brandenburg as a Christmas gift for her husband, Christian I (reigned 1586–91).
Plate segmented hips, mid-14th century. Provide good protection for the feet, but mostly are designed for mobility as are lightweight and simple design. There are many sculptures and gravestones.
