The Knights of 16th-century Castile used a type of helmet known as morrión, somewhat tapered and with a crest almost sharp. Had a wide brim, raised and wrapped, ending at a point in front and behind, and the top or top was bent.
Although the morion was used particularly by infantry or pawns, Knights and notable characters have not stopped using it because they are lighter than the helmet and leaving the face uncovered to breathe more easily.
Associated with popular only to thirds of Spanish golden age and the conquerors of America, the morion was used in most European countries in the 16th and 17th centuries.
