Equites Gloriae was created in 2019, with a vision of bringing history back to life.
We are a group of historians, horse trainers, dressmakers, fencers and performers exploring the tales of the past.
To us, the Middle Ages is fascinating because our ancestors lived back then. Exploring the skills and knowledge of the people who walked here 600 years ago, is a way for us to connect with our history. Everything we do today is based on decisions and habits of those in times past. Why do we mount our horses from the left, and why does bridles have throat latches?
“Edutainment” is the keyword for our shows and demonstrations. We wish to present our interpretation of 14th century knights in an entertaining yet historically accurate manner that’s of value for the entire family.
