The Nonexistent Knight - The Armour Collection of Ferdinand Von Hapsburg Years ago Franco Maria Ricci, one of the finest and more refined Italian publishers, asked me to photograph the stunning armours collection of the Archduke of Tyrol Ferdinand of Hapsburg, kept at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, to illustrate a book based on a novel. Dougless had sniffed. "That's exactly what I want: a Knight in Shining Armor to swoop down off his white horse and want me so much that he carries me back to his castle, where we live happily ever after."

The Knight in Rusty Armor is a novella by Robert Fisher. It tells the tale of a knight obsessed with being a knight, so much so that he spends all his time in his armor and completely alienates his family. One day, he discovers that he cannot take his armor off, not even able to lift his visor for meals.   This video is a book review of the work of Dr. Toby Capwell a fantastic book dealing with the sort of armours worn in England ( - ). Significant factors in the development of armour.

Knight, now a title of honor bestowed for a variety of services, but originally in the European Middle Ages a formally professed cavalryman. The first medieval knights were professional cavalry warriors, some of whom were vassals holding lands as fiefs from the lords in whose armies they served.   But not before one hapless knight called Sir Edmund Springhouse had a little accident in his full armour. The problem was – well, you try climbing a scaling ladder up the side of a castle wall with who knows what being thrown down at you while you are wearing a full suit of armour.
