The morrión is a medieval helmet with a conical shape and crest that began to be used at the end of the 15th century and remained in use until the 17th century. This emblematic helmet was used by Knights, Spanish Tercios and Conquistadors of America. Its evolution from the helmet included the addition of a wide brim and a curl to improve protection for the ears, face and neck. Inside, it had leather cross straps with buckles to ensure a proper fit.

Origin and Evolution of the Morrion

The morion made its appearance at the end of the 15th century, initially with a conical shape and a sharp crest designed to fulfill its function in battle. Later, it was adopted by the Spanish thirds during the Golden Age and by the Conquerors of America. Its name comes from the Spanish word "morra," which means crown on the head.

The conical shape of the helmet was intended to make blows and impacts from weapons such as pikes or spears slide over it, providing greater protection to the wearer. Throughout history, the morion has evolved in its design and has adapted to different military needs and ornamental styles. Even today, we can find morions in the Vatican's Swiss Guard, a military body in charge of the Pope's security.

El Morrión: Helmet of the Conquerors of America

The Spanish Conquistadors began their epic conquest at the end of the 15th century and during the 16th century, annexing vast territories of America and the Philippines to the domain of the Spanish Crown. One of the most iconic elements of their military clothing was the morion, which has become a distinctive symbol of this era.

The morions of the Chiefs and Officers of the Conquerors used to have a hole in the upper part, where they placed feathers as a badge. In addition, it was common to find morions adorned with acid etchings and decorative reliefs that reflected the wealth and importance of their bearers in the society of the time.
