Near my #hometown The Moszna Castle (#pałac w Mosznej) is a historic castle and residence located in a small village of Moszna in #poland . The #castle is one of the best known monuments in the #western part of Upper Silesia. The #history of this #building begins in the 17th #century , although much older cellars were found in the #gardens during excavations carried out at the beginning of the 20th century. Some of the investigators, including H. Barthel, claimed that those cellars could have been remnants of a presumed Templar castle, but their theory has never been proved. After #world War II, further excavations discovered a #medieval palisade.

#polskirycerz #knight #poland The Hussars were famous for their huge "wings", a wooden frame carrying eagle, ostrich, swan or goose feathers. In the 16th century, characteristic painted wings or winged claws began to appear on cavalry shields. The most common theory is that the hussars wore the wings because they made a loud, clattering noise which made it seem like the cavalry was much larger than in reality and frightened the enemy's horses. Other possibilities included the wings being made to defend the backs of the men against swords and lassos, or that they were worn to make their own horses deaf to the wooden noise-makers used by the Ottoman and the Crimean Tatars.
