Livro do Armeiro-Mor

submit to reddit
 

Livro do Armeiro-Mor is an illuminated manuscript dated 1509, created during the reign of King Manuel I, fourteenth king of Portugal. The codex is an armorial designed by João do Cró, Rei de Armas (John Cro, King of Arms). It is considered one of the masterpieces of illuminated manuscripts preserved in Portugal.

The secular rulers wear armour and tabards bearing their arms, and have helms on their shields. The bishops also wear armour (under their episcopal copes) but use mitres in the place of crests on top of their shields.

You can clearly see the ties holding the armour in place.
