Our Alençon design is based on a 16th century child-sized armor in the collection of Musée de l'Armée, thought to have been made for Hercules-François d'Alençon—the fourth and last son of King Henry II—when he was six years old. Like many French armors of this period, the extant armor does not include leg defenses beyond the tassets, though it is not clear whether these pieces never existed or have simply not survived to the present day. The beautiful harness features an intricate clover-like design, evoking Italian textile patterns of the time.

Our model is 5'2 and wearing a size XS in high-waisted.
