Juan Pizarro had been wounded previously in a skirmish and on account of this wound was unable to wear his morion.
About the end of the 16th century the usual English helmets were the burgonet and morion.
If I had but a piece of steel, he groaned,but a piece of steelI would make carrion of the fellow with the morion there!
“Well, it do stun me,” he said, taking off his morion for a fresh scratch.
It had its own money, seal, and arms composed of an escritoire on a field fleur-de-lis, surmounted by a casque and morion.
He took off his coat of mail and his morion, but kept his sword in his hand.
His head was uncovered, and on the table at his side stood the morion he had doffed.
Lopez raised his morion, and, leaning on his pike, glanced over the expanse.
He was in despair because the steel cap was not a proper helmet, but only a morion without a vizor to let down.
He liked the way I had done the morion, which astonished me, as I had done it all unaided.
