Royal medieval helmet with brass crown
The so-called Great Helmets worn by kings on the battlefield were usually equipped with a crown to distinguish them from others and highlight their status. Thus, their own troops could easily recognize them in battle and provide them with special protection. He may also have given them the option of being taken hostage and held for ransom, rather than being killed outright by opposing forces. The so-called large helmet was widespread throughout Central Europe in the Middle Ages. Numerous historical illustrations, miniatures and finds from Germany, Flanders, England, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, etc. testify to the popularity of this type of helmet at that time.
