(15mm) 15CRL3 Carolingian Caballarii

After defeating the Muslim army at Tours, Charles 'the Hammer' studied his foe's forces and adopted their superior technology (the Muslim had inherited the armour and accoutrements of the Sassanid warrior class, which made the armoured mounted knight possible). Initially using stirrups, saddles and lamellar armour recovered from the dead Islamic horsemen, Charles created his first heavy cavalry. From then on mounted troops became the essential striking force of the Frankish army.

This pack contains four mounted figures in three different poses, horses and riders separate.
