Royal Armouries Horned Helmet Leeds

Picture of the horned helmet that is the symbol of the Royal Armouries museum, Leeds.

Anyone who has visited the Royal Armouries museum here in Leeds will most likely recognize the helmet in the above picture. The horned helmet is the symbol of the museum and is a modern interpretation of Henry VIII's Horned Helmet. You can see the actual helmet which is part of the collection here in Leeds.

Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I gave King Henry VIII of England armour that included the horned helmet in 1514. Today here at the Leeds museum this helmet is the only piece of that gift to survive.
