Although not quite “Medieval”, the origins of The Secrete were definitely from that Era. Seen in the 17th Century, at a time when armor was (for the most part Ceremonial, at best) – this protective head covering was designed be be worn by Noblemen. A form fitting metal “cup plate”, it could be worn under a “normal” hat of the Era (thus offering some form of protection to the top of the head). Some examples were worn by soldiers. Even more more elaborate versions had “folding face bars” (or several metal bars that could be pulled over the face of the wearer). Often painted or burnished black, they could be worn apart from a hat and resembled a “felt” cap.
