Arms and Armour from St Louis to Louis XIII

sold by Musée de l'Armée - Invalides


The Army Museum retains an important collection of old weapons and armor for the discovery of war equipment from the thirteenth century to the mid-seventeenth century.
Considered the third in the world, for its quality and variety, this ensemble is rich with many historical objects that can, for many of them, be elevated to the rank of works of art.

Used in combat, by the most illustrious princes as by the simple combatants, but also in the chase or at the occasion of the aristocratic rejoicings, the jousts and the tournaments, the treasures of the old department of the museum of the Army, revealed in this guide, represent as many testimonies of the political history of Europe, of that of the techniques, even of that of the taste.
