Uniforms and headgear

Age of Kings Militaria.

Before World War I and the time of mechanized armies there was the Age of Kings. The great armies of the late 1900's were heirs to a rich military heritage. These armies embodied the spirit and national identity of the nations they served. There are few alive today who have witnessed the pomp and grandeur of a great military parade of the pre 1914 era.

The pageantry of processions of cavalry troops, artillery columns and massed infantry in colorful uniforms and headgear must have been a fantastic sight. Our goal is to provide information, research and contact within the collector community. We hope to provide regular informational postings related to military collectibles of the era.

We encourage the reader to send information and research request to our site. In addition Age of Kings will also offer items for sale through our website or at auction.

Age of Kings Militaria is honored to help a "Vet".  We are now offering helmets from the collection of a West Point Graduate and retired US Army officer.  During his duty in Germany he began collecting Pickelhaube from local civilians and flea markets.  He was stationed in Germany during the days of the famous Frankfurt river side flea market.  He has a large collection of outstanding and genuine WWI era helmets. Keep watching our site for more helmets to come.
