MILITARY FLAIL, Hussite wars, medieval weapon, replica, XV. century

Last pieces in stock
(catalogue number: AES4758)

Replica of a Military Flail from the second half of the 15th or early 16th century – not a secondary modified agricultural tool, but a purpose-made combat weapon. The models were the originals of Military Flail preserved in the collections of the Czech National Museum (inventory number H2-20) and the Military History Institute in Prague. This type of war mace also appears in contemporary depictions from the late Middle Ages. The deliberate use of maces in combat is reliably documented for Europe and the Mediterranean region from the first half of the 13th century, but it reached its peak in the 15th century (especially in Bohemia during the Hussite Wars). Its use is also known from peasant rebellions in the 16th and 17th centuries.
