description

Complex knee protection is an essential element of medieval battle outfit of every knight. First models appeared in the XIII century. Kneecaps (poleyn) of various shapes were used together as with brigand or plate leg armor, so over the mail stockings. This element could be worn as independent piece of medieval leg armor, so as a part of solid metal legs (cuisse). Numerous effigies, miniatures, paintings and other historical sources show us knights, wearing such joint armor.
