At the Royal Armouries, we have lots of objects that are either from or are related to some very special people!

Armour could show off how rich a king or queen was and also could make lots of money for the monarch! And then there are knights! They wore armour a lot and it could not only help the knight to stay protected but it also looks really cool! There are lots of stories about these characters and also the castles that they might have lived in!

Below are lots of videos and resources for you to explore and learn more about this fascinating subject. Have fun!
