The Headdress

A medieval headdress is a garment that is totally or partially used to cover the head, and that in the female headdress includes the hairstyle or adornment of the hair and the set of elements that compose it. The term can also be applied to a variety of garments from the same root (tocas, toquillas) and extended to hats, caps, helmets, bonnets, handkerchiefs, shawls, scarves, ribbons, lace, etc.


The Beanie

In the early Middle Ages, the Germanic peoples introduced a simple costume that included a hat or mortar that the Visigoths brought to Spain, also using it, apparently, for women, and they also wore leather hats or bonnets. When in the 6th century the fusion of new uses with Roman traditions was made, a form of pointed cap similar to the Phrygian one was very common for men, since women wore a floating veil or hood. In France, in the time of Charlemagne, the mortar was still used by the people of the cities in winter time and it seems that the emperor himself wore it because it is known that he was very simple in his customs. During the 9th century, Phrygian-style caps and bonnets alternated with hoods on the dress of maidens. Documents from the 10th century speak of capillos and pilos and at that same time the Cluniac monks wore cowls, chapels and fur caps in winter by license of their statutes. In the 11th century, in France, one sees in bas-reliefs and in vignettes in manuscripts a hemispherical rimless cap together with a petasus-like hat. Around this same time, the Spanish women wore a kind of tall cap made of curly cloth, similar to the coifs used in the 10th century. The men wore chapels, almuzas, capped bonnets that must have the same shape as those already indicated in France. .


The Diadem

The word derives from the Greek διάδημα diádēma, "band" or "fillet", from διαδέω diadéō, "I bind round", or "I fasten". The term originally referred to the embroidered white silk ribbon, ending in a knot and two fringed strips often draped over the shoulders, that surrounded the head of the king to denote his authority. Such ribbons were also used to crown victorious athletes in important sports games in antiquity. It was later applied to a metal crown, generally in a circular or "fillet" shape. For example, the crown worn by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands was a diadem, as was that of a baron later (in some countries surmounted by three globes). The ancient Celts were believed to have used a thin, semi-oval gold plate called a mind (Old Irish) as a diadem. Some of the earliest examples of these types of crowns can be found in ancient Egypt, from the simple fabric type to the more elaborate metallic type, and in the Aegean world.
