German Knight - Ministeriales

But this knight could be used also very far away from Germany, as a Ministeriale at the service of the Kingdom of Sicily, a castellan and judge administrating royal territories.

The model is from Mirliton Miniatures and I like especially the helm, which is a copy of an existing one form Germany. 


Funeral helmet of the von Pranckh family with the crest of two bullhorns:
