Crusader Knight on wounded Horse

Here are some pictures of the 6th Knight, a Swedish Crusader Knight from the House of Snakenborg on his wounded dead horse...

I´m not sure if the The House of Snakenborg was present in Sweden during the 13th century, they probably established them selfs in Sweden in the 1360´s during the regency by King Albert of Mecklenburg. The House of Snakenborg probably originate from the City of Schnackenburg in Mecklenburg, but as there was many Germans trade connections to Sweden during the 13th Century I have choose to includ them in my Crusading force, and the CoA are cool to:)

Read more about the House of Snakenborg and the British connection here;)

The other 5 Crusader Knights will arrive tomorrow...


The mini are an old Foundry Norman Knight that I had in my bitbox, he got a new helmet and shield
