Knight helmets: sugar loaf helmet, great helmet

Knights in the High Middle Ages wore different types of helmets. The most common one is the great helmet. This is the classic knight's helmet as seen in medieval manuscripts and featured in medieval movies. In the late Middle Ages this helmet developed into a frog-shaped helmet for jousting. Almost all knight helmets worn in the High Middle Ages were variants of the great helmet. An example of a variant is the sugar loaf helmet.

Crusader helmet & Templar helmet

The great helmet was also worn by the crusaders. This type of helmet originated around the time of the first crusade. This is why Medieval sculptures, stained glass windows and manuscripts usually depict the Crusaders wearing the great helmet. The large helmet has horizontal slits for the eyes, a flat top and ventilation holes. Helmets were worn combined with an arming cap for extra comfort. This was essential in the warm regions of the Crusades, because padding could absorb the heat of the steel.
