The Royal Armory in Stockholm and its knightly armor ...
In the basements where the Royal armory ward in Stockholm, when we go down there we will see this ...


"He will command some to plow his land and harvest his crops, and others to make military weapons and equipment for his chariots."
(First Samuel 8: 12)

Museum collections of knightly armor and weapons. The two previous materials devoted to the armor of the Swedish king Eric XIV aroused genuine interest of the VO readership, and it is clear why - if many have heard about the armor of the same Henry VIII, then there is much less information about Sweden, in fact, there is practically no information at all. Of course, there is a site for this or that museum, including the Armory of the Swedish kings in Stockholm. But ... these sites are not always convenient to use. This is not the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the site of which is clearly designed for the very latest "teapot"! Nevertheless, there are also museum employees who are usually always ready to help you, you just need to contact them and explain in an understandable way what you need and why you need it.


The creator of the Armory was a very belligerent monarch and personally led his squadrons to the attack! "Gustav Adolphus at the Battle of Lutzen." Jan Martens de Jonge (1609-1647), c. 1634 (private collection)

Well, today we will tell you about how this armory of hers appeared in Stockholm, and about some of the armor of her exposition, armor that, it happens, can be seen in the photo on the Internet, but ... without any information, dedicated to them.


As a result, he was first wounded and then killed in the battle of Lützen. “Death of King Gustav II Adolf. At the battle of Lützen on November 6, 1632 ”. Artist Karl Walbom (1810-1858). Written in 1855 by the National Museum, Stockholm

And it so happened that in 1628 the King of Sweden Gustav II Adolf decided that the clothes (two suits, in one of which he was wounded!), Which he wore during his campaigns in Poland, should be kept for posterity "for eternal memory" and in addition, also put on public display. This is how he laid the foundation for Livrustkammaren, Sweden's oldest museum. Before that, the Armory was the most ordinary arsenal located in the ancient castle of Tre Krunur. Now people have the opportunity to see the artifacts stored in it "live" and remember the life and deeds of their owners. In 1800, this remarkable collection merged with the Royal Dressing Room, and everything that was there was also moved to the Armory. Moreover, although they are stored there, they are also in use at the same time, but are mainly used only in the most solemn occasions, such as weddings of royals, coronations and funerals.


Karl Walbom: "Finding the body of King Gustav II Adolf of Sweden after the Battle of Lützen." National Museum, Stockholm

When Gustav II Adolf fell at the Battle of Lützen in 1632, his bloody clothing and the skin of his horse Streif were also sent to Stockholm. The clothes were kept in the castle, and the skin of the horse was stretched over a wooden sculpture. In addition to the bloody shirts of Gustav II Adolf from the battle of Lützen, there are also boots and a cloak of Charles XII, soiled in mud at Fredrikshald, where, during the siege, he received his fatal bullet in 1718. The costume of Gustav III, in which he was at the masquerade in 1792 and where he was fatally shot in the back, is also, of course, here. Where else could such a valuable exhibit be? One of the oldest artifacts in the museum is the helmet of Gustav Vasa from 1542. The helmet was apparently made in southern Germany around 1540. And such a helmet with a crown is a great rarity, they practically have not survived. The helmet was bought in Augsburg by order of the king by the merchant Klaus Hader. It was probably worn during the funeral procession of Gustav Vasa in 1560, since a helmet with a golden crown is mentioned by one of the witnesses of the ceremony. The gilded crown has a medieval look and is a fitting symbol for the hereditary monarchy he created.


And here is the ill-fated fancy dress of Gustav III, in which he was shot in the back!

A very curious artifact is ... a Russian helmet with gold decor, made in Moscow around 1533 for the future Tsar Ivan IV, nicknamed "Terrible". It was probably first captured by the Poles in Moscow, and then the Swedes captured it in Warsaw in 1655. Around the crown of the helmet there is a text in Old Russian, which clearly indicates that the helmet belongs to Ivan IV (1530-1584).

In the 1660s, part of the chamber's exhibits were moved from the castle to the Queen Christina Pavilion in Kungstradgarden. Shown here were the Costumes of Gustav II Adolf, the Streif horse, beautiful saddles and fabrics. At that time, the exhibition was considered one of the main attractions of Stockholm. Armor, weapons and banners were kept in the castle.


By the way, absolutely knightly, but ceremonial armor of King Gustav II Adolf is also exhibited here. In them, of course, he no longer fought. But to have - had. So it was supposed to be according to the position! Royal Armory - Livrustkammarin, a museum at the Royal Palace of Stockholm

In 1691, it was decided to establish a weapons museum at Makalos Palace in Kungstradgarden, so weapons and armor were moved there. Thanks to this, the collections survived when the Three Crowns Castle burned down in 1697. The Armory has been in Makalos Palace for 100 years. Later it was rebuilt into a theater, and Livrustkammaren moved to the Fredrikshovsgatan castle on Ostermalm.

In the XNUMXth century, the Armory managed to visit various buildings in Stockholm. The objects were also divided. The most valuable items were sent to the Royal Castle, flags and armor were placed in the Church of Riddarholm, and most of them were transferred to the old castle theater Confidensen in Ulriksdal Castle.

In 1850, all artifacts were again collected at the Armory. The new place of the exposition is the Palace of the Hereditary Prince on Gustav Adolf Square, where the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is today. From the Royal Chamber of Garments came precious garments that used to belong to kings, queens, princes and princesses and were used on special occasions.

In 1865-1883. The Armory was housed in the National Museum. Moreover, the National Museum housed not only collections of works of art, but also items that are now in the Historical Museum. The Armory collections have been enriched with, among other things, the old royal ceremonial carriages from Hovstallet and a large collection of weapons from King Charles XV. In the end, there was simply no more room for the Armory at the National Museum, and it returned to the Royal Castle.


There is also one more armor of King Eric XIV in the collection. Already the third in a row and clearly fighting, as evidenced by the notches on the crest of the helmet and on its visor. It is not as richly decorated as the previous two, but it is quite suitable for participation in hostilities. It is characteristic that the left shoulder pad is much larger than the right one, that is, it is designed to be struck with a spear from this side. The lance hook is missing, but it was, as evidenced by the three holes for its attachment. Royal Armory - Livrustkammarin, a museum at the Royal Palace of Stockholm

At this time, the Armory became a modern museum. Its employees began to search the old archives for documents showing how and when the items got into the Armory and which kings they belonged to. It turned out that much of what was said before about this or that artifact was not true, a mixture of legends and fairy tales. The results of this work were published in books and catalogs, and this was of great knowledge for stories... Personnel were hired to repair, clean and preserve the items stored in the museum, something that no one had ever done before.


We are still asked questions about whether their armor prevented the knights ... from going to the toilet? No, they did not interfere at all, and this armor just very clearly shows this. As you can see, his seat is not covered with metal at all. There is no metal on the back of the thighs either. That is, nothing prevents him, without taking off his armor ... to do all his business, both in front and behind. Royal Armory - Livrustkammarin, a museum at the Royal Palace of Stockholm

When the royal family needed space in the castle, the Armory was transferred to the Northern Museum in Djurgården. Here, items were exhibited in the main hall from 1906 to 1977.

Finally, in 1978, the Armory returned to Stockholm's Royal Castle. True, only a small part of all the exhibits are on display, all the rest are kept in basements. But they are sent to special exhibitions or donated to other museums.

The Stockholm Armory is believed to have one of the world's finest collections of costumes, weapons, carriages and saddles. So, being in Stockholm, it is undoubtedly worth seeing! By the way, the entrance to the museum is completely free, which, of course, is always very pleasant. There is a radio guide in Russian.

                      We only had a box near the school. And the other is behind the line. These are completely different courtyards.
                      Before ours, trees were growing.
                      It was easier with football.
                      Wasteland - and enough. And for the hockey goal, there were enough boxes for us, small ones. And they were substituted under the puck without protection.
                      So there was more football.

                      Differently.
                      Probably there was more freedom.
                      And independence.

                      And in general, wooden boxes are so much better than plastic ones.
                      And anything from lead can be smelted.

          Sergei, and I remember this World Cup. I also had a b / w Aurora TV. Oh, and we suffered with him: either there is no image or sound.
          I remembered this meeting: at the most crucial moment, the image disappeared, and the announcer, it seems, was still Ozerov, he was pumping it up.
          At that time I was not very wary of the Swedes, while the Canadians and the Czechs were very dangerous rivals. I remember: the Finns and Swedes have a very tough defense. The Canadians relied on the power struggle, and the Czechs combined: speed and power struggle.
          Today's hockey lacks Soviet technicality.

              True, there was one incident in childhood, in the city of Vilnius, rooting for Moscow “Dynamo”, they had a match with “Zalgiris”, ours won, and even then - the team captain Lev Yashin was at the gate. I was then about five years old and I was terribly proud of this victory. smile

              Also no offense, I know how CSKA was recruited, all promising ones were taken into the army and then you are already in some kind of SKA or dunama, then perhaps Moscow .. and you need to clearly understand that in the teams of the series of Muscovites there was a max of 5%. No offense! Wings in this sense, at that time, a more creative club from it to the stable were also taken many, but in the Canadian games they did not make the national team from Wings, and the stable was replenished with players from all leading clubs. good drinks

    Anton, good morning
    One of the oldest artifacts in the museum is the helmet of Gustav Vasa from 1542

    his photo


    The helmet was made in southern Germany around 1540 and is unusual in that it is one of the few surviving helmets adorned with a crown.
    It was bought in Augsburg on behalf of the king by his agent, merchant Klaus Heider. The helmet was used in the funeral procession of Gustav Vasa in 1560 because a contemporary who witnessed the ceremony mentioned a helmet decorated with a gilded crown.

    A very curious artifact is ... a Russian helmet with gold decor, made in Moscow around 1533 for the future Tsar Ivan IV, nicknamed "Terrible". Probably, at first it was captured by the Poles in Moscow, and then the Swedes captured it in Warsaw in 1655

    Swedish historians adhere to a different version. These are the Swedish trophies of the battle near Lode Castle. In January 1574, in the midst of the Livonian War, Swedish and Russian troops fought near the Estonian castle of Lode. Ours were defeated, and the Swedes captured many trophies. To take them all, according to the Swedish chroniclers, it took a thousand sledges. The fact about 1.000 sledges is, of course, unprovable, this figure was often used by chroniclers to emphasize its importance, but it is known that there were numerous trophies and that the Swedish kings kept many Russian weapons and armor from among them.
    The Stockholm Museum also contains a mirrored armor of Russian work, which was also captured in the battle at Lode Castle.

      the shell of "Ivan the Terrible"

      The helmet of Ivan the Terrible is called a "shell" for a reason. This is a whole variety of iron heads, which differed in the height of the dome and, of course, in the long spire.
      The peak of its popularity came in the XNUMXth century, by the end of which it fell out of use, giving way to its more successful colleagues.
      The shell of "Ivan the Terrible" is forged from steel and weighs 1 kilogram 280 grams. Its height is 41 cm and to make it clear, it is 9 cm more than the height of a 210 liter bottle of lemonade. The width of the helmet is about XNUMX mm.
      The outside is covered with brass, silver and gold, and the inside is trimmed with red satin. Herringbone stitching details the fabric.
      It is likely that the helmet was made at the Armory Chamber of the Moscow Kremlin.
      Usually expensive helmets were not used in wars. Therefore, the museums are full of ceremonial helmets, decorated according to the latest squeak of modern fashion. And without a trace of war.
      But such traces are full on the helmet of "Ivan the Terrible". These are dents, traces of hasty field repairs and, of course, a through hole in the helmet.
      Where did she come from?
      Judging by the fact that the hole is round, it is a bullet or a war hammer.
      But how and when the helmet was damaged is unknown.

      Who was killed in it? There is still a dispute about this.

      So, the helmet of Ivan the Terrible has been in battles. The inscription on it suggests: after Ivan Vasilyevich someone else wore it.
      Old Russian letters read: "Shelom of Prince Ivan Vasilyevich, Grand Duke, son of Vasily Ivanovich, lord of all Russia, autocrat"
      Pay attention: "Shelom of Prince Ivan Vasilyevich". Not a king, but a prince. It is important!
      Prince Ivan Vasilievich became Tsar at the age of 16 and a half, in January 1547. Consequently, the helmet and the inscription were made even earlier and in front of us is the helmet of a teenager.
      Perhaps the owner of the helmet was the youngest son of the nominal ruler of Moscow Russia Simeon Bekbulatovich, who died at Lode, who was temporarily installed by Ivan the Terrible himself.
      But it is not exactly.

          "The idea of ​​tyuknukt a helmet entertained", I doubt: this is not a helmet of some simple war, you can riddle it like that, but "Tsar's helmet"! They will pay more money for the whole, and who wants to lose? Although if the owner of the helmet became some kind of prick: "fools are always lucky" and he was banned to check. There are always enough gifted ones

        Interestingly, where, in the inscription: "Shelom of Prince Ivan Vasilyevich, Grand Duke, son of Vasily Ivanovich, ruler of all Russia, autocrat" contains at least a hint that after Ivan Vasilyevich someone else wore it? And so I read it, and so, but I could not find out where.

        If we attribute the title of "Lord of All Russia" not to "Ivan Vasilyevich", but to "Vasily Ivanovich" (which, in my opinion, is obvious), then it turns out that at the time of making the helmet Vasily III is still alive, i.e. helmet made between 1530 and 1533

    One of the oldest artifacts in the museum is the helmet of Gustav Vasa from 1542. The helmet was clearly made in southern Germany around 1540 ... And such a helmet with a crown is very rare

      By the way, in Livrustkammaren there is another helmet by Gustav Vasa, no less interesting. Also made in southern Germany, in Augsburg or Nuremberg, around 1540.

              The author in the article mentioned the war horse of Gustav Vasa - Streif. A worthy horse, well deserved.

                  The horse was interested.
                  Was the widely practiced art of taxidermy still perfection in those days?
                  Death and art have always been together. The ancient Egyptians identified dead animals in eternal museum life, and taxidermy macabras like the multi-figured composition "Cat's Tea Party" were in vogue in England during the Victorian era.
                  In this case, it can be seen that the horse's legs are composed of separate fragments of the skin.

                    The fact is that in the XNUMXth century, when making such stuffed animals, the skin was pulled over a wooden frame in the shape of a horse. This operation cannot be performed without cutting the skin. In the XNUMXth century, they began to use a metal frame or stuff the hide with straw.
                    Nevertheless, the skin is "native", although the ears and nose were damaged by a fire in the 1640s.
                    This suggests that the unknown blacksmith and court pharmacist Kasten Meyener, who carried out the initial processing of the horse, coped with their task.

                      But now the art of taxidermy has reached incredible mastery. And this is despite the protests of the humanized public. For example, a taxidermy sculpture by Maurizio Cattelan. The screaming donkey put its front feet on a piece of granite; on the withers of a donkey - a dog, on a dog, a cat arched its back and lifted its tail, on a cat a bird - there is nowhere more natural!
                      I am also jarred by this art, as well as keeping animals in a zoo, and a circus even more so. However, great taxidermists are famous and expensive - many of the wealthy are their customers.

                        Thanks to the achievements of science and technology. It's one thing to make a stuffed animal using soft padding, another - using an exact replica of an animal made of polyurethane foam, repeating exactly all the muscles. And chemistry has stepped forward.

                        A few years ago, there was an exhibition of Fabre in the Hermitage (if I was not mistaken in the name of this French artist of contemporary art): it caused a lot of controversy: all sorts of suspended stuffed dogs and cats somewhat shocked lovers of classical art. Piotrovsky said - this is also art and the exhibition was not removed ahead of schedule. hi

              Note that the pistol grips are facing forward, not backward. So it was accepted, but in our museums everyone tries to turn the handles to the saddle, but this is wrong!

              "worthy horse, deserved" seems to feel sorry for the horse, but at the same time, do not make a stuffed animal out of Fine, it would soon be forgotten, and so it has been preserved for centuries

    Colleagues, hello.
    Vyacheslav Olegovich has some interesting material in store. Let's thank him for the Informative material. I and, probably, most of my colleagues will not visit this museum "live".
    If the entrance is free, it is not a fact that the road is free.
    And with current prices ...

    There is also one more armor of King Eric XIV in the collection. Already the third in a row and clearly fighting, as evidenced by the notches on the crest of the helmet and on its visor.

    Vyacheslav Olegovich, are there photographs?
    I so quickly looked through Eric's biography, it was interesting in what military companies he participated directly and in what battle he could have put these Kotsk on his armor, but I did not find anything sensible.
    Any details on this armor?

        Sometimes, nothing can be done.
        There will be time, I will still try to find out in what battle Eric got in the head and from whom. With his diagnosis, such an additional "shake-up" in general could affect his health in the most radical way.

            Do not admire me, for I need sympathy. At 2 am, under a mosquito roar and squeak (apparently, there were individuals of either different age or weight categories), with groans and curses, I found a mosquito and last year's reserves of plates, turned on the device, closed the window and woke up etched to swelling of the face (with this for me at once) - from the spirit of chamomile and freshly worn car tires ...

                It turns out that you wish the mosquitoes good luck, Seryozha))) It was once: we barely climbed, and then the frost hit. The entire population at the root. Life was calm that year. And the old wooden window frames, which dry out on occasion, do not accompany my luck. And I think: how difficult it is to live in the taiga!
