Alexander, my 8 year old son, asked to be a Knight. He even told me what colour doublet (a puffy coat under the armour) he should wear and chose his toy sword on the eBay . All of it was influenced by the BBC production ‘Merlin’.
I had to dig up the Internet to study the armour and its parts and history, and can now show off some old world terminology in a clever conversation (making sure I’m not talking to an expert).
So here he is, in his full glory.
