The Gorget of Armor: Centennial Protection

The gorget of armor is an ancient piece that played a crucial role in the self-defense of warriors throughout history. Although its origin dates back to distant times, its evolution and use were consolidated in the Middle Ages. This piece of silver armor became a valuable replacement for the mail gorget or bishop's mantle, which over time evolved into hinged iron components. Its main appearance occurred in the 15th century, marking a new era in personal protection.

In Spain, the gorget reached its maximum splendor during the 16th century. This historical period saw wide dissemination and use of this piece of armor, especially in the court of Philip II. Its importance lies not only in its protective function, but also in its cultural and aesthetic impact on the fashion of the time.

The gorget was the first piece that a warrior wore before going into combat. It fitted around the neck and provided essential defense. The breastplate and armguards were placed on it, which were secured by a buckle and a strap. It consisted of an iron collar divided into two articulated pieces to allow for a comfortable fit. In addition, it had a semicircular or polygonal skirt that covered the upper part of the chest and another that protected the back. Both joined over the shoulders, providing complete protection.
