Ignoring the colours, your description sounds like this example copied from an illustration in the Maciejowski Bible:

This is a French source (despite its Polish name - that's another story!!) of around 1250. Various styles existed and are shown in the Bible quoted - it is probably the best source available for French armour and weapons of the mid-13th century:

Sounds much later (16th century?) to me, but it wouldn't be called a kettle hat if it is. Does it look like something the Spanish would wear to invade South America?

nope a lot of the european ones were very sloped

question si how big is the ridge


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
