The initial push of the Crusades devastated the Holy Land, expelled the Muslim powers and created diverse Christian kingdoms in the Middle East. The situation in those kingdoms was barely stable and they needed a continuous flow of warriors from Europe to guarantee their survival in front of the Arab armies’ pressure that were fighting to conquer back those territories.
At first, faith had been the main incentive for these warriors, fervent devotes that didn’t hesitate to travel across half-world to fight for their beliefs. But later, a lot of members excluded from the European societies went there for the promise of a future that offered incredible opportunities to those who dare to grab them.
Our Norman Knight could be a descendant of the early Norman crusaders that went to Holy Land during the First Crusade and his garment is typical from mid XIII century, based primarily on chainmail (omnipresent on the battlefield since several hundred years). Heraldry was not yet as elaborated as it would be later, but was already in use in surcoats and shields. This miniature offers countless options for decoration for any painter.
