Cuirassiers were the successors of the medieval armored knights. These mounted cavalry soldiers were equipped with firearms as well armour and first appeared in the late 15th century. The cuirassiers armor differientaed from the medieval knights full-body armor, in that the cuisses (thigh armor) are fully aritculated with many lames rather than solid plate defenses. This articulation is further enhanced by the use of sliding rivets. Rather than using steel greaves, the cuirassiers wore leather riding boots. They also used early wheel-lock pistols, in addition to lances and swords. Our beautiful half harness is a fine example of a 1650's cuirassier's armor.
