    Aye simwae, I'm King Henry the VIII

    Aye, siwmae. And good day to you. I'm Henry VIII. I'm just, well, a peddler, of sorts. I adore trinkets and oddities, so I trade for them.

    [Real version of the Helm of the Wise made for King Henry the VIII. I'm sure I'm not the only one that didn't know this.]

    I saw that on Cracked earlier today. I think it is cool that Fromsoft likes to reference to pieces in history in their games.

    Apparently this was given to him by Maximilian the 1st in the 1500's, go figure?

    Good find Fatneckwood, as I too have not seen it referenced here before, although I did recall thinking when I first saw it in the game that I'd seen it before somewhere, but for the life of me couldn't figure out where, and even though I didn't give it much thought after that thanks all the same for clearing that up. Here have a +1 for being a font of useless knowledge! big grin

    Well, slappa my thighs, I didn't know this either. I wonder if it's on display anywhere? I've been to the Armoury in the Tower of London and don't remember seeing it there. This is a great place to visit for Dark Souls fans by the way. It's chock full of great armour sets and they even have horse armour on display on life size model horses as well as weapons. (And of course there's the Beefeaters, who are a mine of information but you have to book to see the executions, authentically carried out with an axe).

    P.S. It reminds me a bit of the 'Mask of Clavicus Vile' in Skyrim' too.

    That image up there isn't very good. This video gives a better look.

    Incidentally, for those of you who were unaware, "Aye, siwmae!" is Welsh and basically means "Aye, hello!". (Surprise, surprise)

    The House of Tudor, which Henry VIII belonged to, had Welsh origins. I thought that was a neat touch.
