Weapons and armors during the Ottoman wars:

Feb 12, 2022

The Armory in Graz, Austria boasts a huge collection of weapons and armors. The Collection of the Styrian Armoury contains arms and armor from the 15th to the 18th centuries. By the turn of the 17th century, the number of arms and armor had grown to approximately 190.000 objects.

Many of them were used on the battlefields during the Ottoman wars in Hungary, and it is quite hard to tell who used them: Austrians, Hungarians, or Croatians.

In my article, I made an attempt to select a few of the weapons and armors that are related to Hungarians. However, many of the weapons were generally used in western Europe at that age.

I've included the Armory's descriptions of the weapons but added a few notes and links where I thought it was needed. you can find it here:
