Developed along the same lines as most European styles, many Middle Eastern Kingdoms saw the need for some form of protection for their troops. Originally thought of as “unmanly” for a warrior to even need to protect himself (Martyrdom was just as popular to them as it was to a Crusader). Still, the need to protect one's soldiers (to fight another day), became tantamount. The Turban Helmet (as coined in English), was a conical shaped, Barbute-type protective headgear. Often extending downward to not only protect the neck, ears and almost the entirety of the wearers face. Often, a slender Nasal Guard could be attached (or removed) to suit the wearer. Turban Helmets were also used with Mail Coifs or Pixane Mail. Seen in the late 14th Century – they did not carry onward much past the 16th Century.
