  1. I bet Llewellyn will either be screaming like a girl or trying to eat her when he sees the armor.

  2. Just hope Isolde isn’t one of the dragon relations who would think of St George, and that she might as well be wearing a nutrition label

    • It was, but not for the reason you are thinking of. Outside battle, it was seldom a problem for a knight who fell over in armour to get back up- both because the weight of the armour was spread over their entire body, and because it wasn’t THAT heavy- it weighed between 15-25 kilos, so about the same as your baggage allowance when you fly with most airlines. However, armour does restrict your movements- especially if you don’t have a custom-made set, which most knights had.

      However, the reason why it was a problem in battle is that a knight that had fallen over was pretty much defenseless- which was usually exploited by whoever had managed to make them fall to either force a surrender, or to kill said knight. (they preferred to get the knight to surrender since they could demand a ransom- which could get pretty large (the ransom for Richard the Lionheart was something like 2-3 times England’s income at the time- and there was never any suggestion that it was excessively large.
