Mughal plate mail?
Before I watch past 40 seconds, I must say that armour really doesnt look bad at all, looks alot like the armour used in the middle east (chain with plates).
Hey you mentioned MB Warband! whoot its only the best game ever made. I'm not surprised that your familiar with it though now that I think about it…
hello. the stannis's armour was inspired originaly from ottoman armour. I believe Philippines armour was inspired by turkish. what do you think? thanks for video.
"Moro", that's of course Spanish for "Moorish" 🙂
Actually the armour has strong resemblance to medieval Russian Behterets armour and some varieties of "four-mirror " armour. These styles were a result of interaction with the Mongol and Persian empires. Behterets armour was in use by cavalry, from, around, 1400AD, and up until, about 1700 AD, the time of the reforms/modernizations of Czar Peter the Great. Similar armour was, also, worn by Adyghe (Circassians) peoples of northwestern Caucasus mountains, into the turn of the 20th century. Behterets is the Russian for Bactrian.
Stannis Baratheon is NOT a Northerner. He is from the Stormlands, which is actually in the south of the seven kingdoms.
Kudos for pronouncing "kudos" correctly!
I know it don't matter but Stannis is actually a southerner.
Not to be a dick but (and I do mean this respectfully not, nerd pushes glasses up "well actually",) The Baratheons are southern from the Storm lands just north of Kings Landing. That being said I Love your Chanel! You Metetron and Lloyd are a big part of my daily routine. It's amazing to me that I can just turn on Youtube and watch vids from you three, instead of spending half a day in the library or wait for The History Chanel to air a documentary on the topic, like when I was younger (I'm a couple years older than you) Thank you so much for the hours and hours of time Well wasted!
Didn't the Rûs use something called a Bechter that was similar?
One True King = Stannis The Mannis
I think Stannis starred in the medieval comedy "You've got Mail!"
I think I'll show myself out.
GoT has Baratheon soldiers wearing burgonets, Lannisters wearing Uruk-Hai helmets, Starks wearing oversized sallet/bascinets, and Freys wearing strange leather hats. It seems each house has evolved different armor, or in the case of the Freys, devolved. I think that out of all the houses the Vale have the most complete armor. Full plate armor on horseback with lances.
Quite lightly armoured but that may be because he had a history of being the naval commander of the 7k
+scholagladiatoria I just looked up examples of Moro armor and noticed that their helmets are also very similar to the ones used by Stannis Baratheon's soldiers. I think your observation of what influenced this armor is spot on.
You have an English accent but you must be Dornish if you think Stannis is a Northerner.
Hi Matt, I just love your videos! Before seeing this vid of yours, I had come across this armour from Turkey that I thought looked a bit like Stannis's armour: http://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/32107
I have thoroughly examined many of the GOTs costumes and the costume designer and armourers have culturally appropriated from many different cultures including South East Asia, Japan, Indigenous cultures such as Tibetan and Inuit and the like. My understanding is that while George RR Martin's story is based (loosely) upon the Wars of the Roses and the Hundred Years War, the show runners wanted the world of Westeros and Essos to have a fantasy feel and not rooted in any particular historical time period.
I think the reason why Stannis might have a departure from the typical Baratheon style armour (he originiates from the Stormlands, not the North) is that he has adopted the R'hllor as his new god, under the counsel of Melisandre and she originates from Asshai.
Stannis the Mannis
I believe that on the continent of Essos, there south eastern portion near Asshai has cultures influenced by real world Asians. Thanks for this vid sir.
PHILLIPINO ARMOR! i KNEW it!!
Has chrome installed, uses internet explorer anyways
Needs shoulder pauldrons.
wow, somebody who uses IE, have not seen that for a while
I always thought Stannis had the coolest looking armor in all of Game of Thrones… even cooler then the Mountains or Sandor's.
im no northman!
Matt wanted to say "westerner" instead of "northerner". So stop playing smartasses.
to be honest I thought it was Kievan Russian inspired armor
stannis is a southern lord from down in the warmish part of the country. the gold cloaks have a similar type of armour.
Wow, uncanny how much that armor matches the pics at the end of the video. Point of info, Stannis and the Baratheon's ruled the Stormlands, which are south of King's Landing. He's not a northerner.
"Stannis Barathion is a Nordener" WHAT??????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *3:48
Stannis is from the stormlands, not the north. The stormlands is one of the southern most kingdoms in westeros. I think you got him mixed up with roos Bolton (probably didn't spell roos properly but it don't matter).
I'd argue that its more eastern europe, mail and plate armours was not uncommon, with the small plates being join by mail.Maybe this is an advancement of lamellar armour replacing the leather thong with metal rings, it'd remove the main weak point of the laceing . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMT6hjwY8NQ note how the laceing fails, revied mail wold be harder to brake.
Can this armour be considered as historical Platemail?
You're reviewing your own armour?
Stannis needs no armour, he's too much badass 😀
If the TV show actually attempted to follow the plot of the books, Stannis' armour would likely far more realistic and practical. The Stannis of the books was not the perverted, religiously fanatical monster of the show; he was an intelligent book worm with a cool wit, an atheist (which while i am a christian in real life i do still respect some atheists), probably asexual, possibly autistic and in favour of a meritocracy and practicality
One thing I never liked about the TV series was very few people wear suitable armour for their rank and period.
Stannis as a King (or even a high Lord), at about mid-15th century era that the series sort of emulates, when dressed for battle would wear a full plate harness.
The Lannister guardsmen are better equipped than most Lords and knights with their breastplates and helmets. They're the ones who should be wearing mail, not a King!
I always liked Excalibur for its quasi-accurate plate armour (just with huge rivets and weird helmet-fronts): https://youtu.be/tSukMQHQLIs
Hollywood is full of rich idiots. Just get the,"Steel Merc Cuirass By Epic Armoury". Allows usage of longswords.
Wow, someone referenced the Filipino-American war! Well, I don't know that I would call it a war. A duration of hostilities, shall we say. Would that be considered a land war in Asia?
Wow! I had no idea the Philippines had such armor. Thanks
For the most part, the folks who worked on the armor for this show knew what they were doing. Even the fucking Dornish armor – which doesn't even look like armor – has an historical basis.
Ottoma armor or safvid
He doesnt need armour, he is 100% mannis and cant die. Brienne physically couldnt kill him and he is still sat by that tree killing bolton men for sport.
