Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Make Female Armor?
In pop culture, female armor typically consists of leather or metal breastplates, armored skirts, bracers, and greaves. Women in armor are depicted either with or without under armor. To make a stereotypical female armor, prepare the key pieces mentioned above. You can choose between leather or metal, depending on which character you are playing.
Did Women Don Armor in the Middle Ages?
Contrary to popular belief, females did participate in armed conflicts during the Middle Ages. Notable female warriors were Matilda of Canossa (1046–1115), Countess Jeanne de Penthièvre (1319–1384), and Joan of Arc (ca. 1412–1431), who led their own armies as military commanders. There are also references, although few, of non-noble women who took up arms during tumultuous periods in history. However, depictions of females in armor are few and far between.
