Roman Helmets

Roman helmets are some of the most iconic and instantly recognizable helms from history, and for that reason, Dark Knight Armoury is all too happy to provide a more than adequate selection of helmets that would have been favored by generals, legionaries, centurions, legates, gladiators, soldiers, and more, all for reenactors or collector who loves that Roman style! Historically, the most commonly known helmet was the imperial helm, which is virtually the style of helmet that anyone pictures when they think of a traditional Roman helmet. It is this style of helmet that features cheek protectors and a limited visor, and is sometimes decorated with a plume. Plumes on Roman helmets could have a variety of meanings, although the most common use was thought to be to help soldiers identify important figures on the battlefield as plumes made a soldier stick out more. Colors could also matter, with some signifying certain things like a special duty. Of course, the imperial helmet is not the only style of Roman helmet we offer, as we also carry a variety of other helms that were used by Roman warriors, including a wide variety of specialized gladiator helmets that are as impressive as they are protective. We also offer a few plumes, so that you can switch out your plumes on your favorite helmet to change the look, or so that you can add a plume to your helmet to totally change its style. Please note that all plumes require a plume holder, and that not all helms will accommodate plumes, so check your item carefully before deciding to add a plume. If you are a collector, then you are bound to find several great collectibles floating around here at Dark Knight Armoury, and if you are a reenactors or a swordsman, then so much the better, because many of our Roman helmets are also great to wear when you are headed off into combat, whether it is a LARP battle, an SCA event, or a traditional Roman reenactment!
