Helmet, Egyptian, c. 1293-1341. This helmet bears the name of the Mamluk sultan Ibn Qala’un, who ruled from Cairo a century before Barquq, the sultan who appointed and dismissed Ibn Khaldun as chief justice on several occasions.
Eva Green as Queen Sybilla of Jerusalem. I really like drapery and hoods on heads, so this is lovely. It really draws attention to her face, while still being extravagant as hell.
