Henry VIII's foot combat armour for the Field of Cloth of Gold tournament in 1520
This video shows two of Henry VIII's two foot combat armours made for him while he was a young athletic man, for the Field of Cloth of Gold tournament in 1520. They are usually on display in the Royal Armouries in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. This video was created by History™ for the exhibition «Dressed to Kill», which was a joint exhibition between Historic Royal Palaces and the Royal Armouries, in the year of the 500th anniversary of his accension to the English throne. It examined the arms and armour of Henry VIII. The exhibition was open at the Tower of London 3 April 2009 — 17 January 2010.
