Art/Literary - Folklore / Medieval armour
English term or phrase: Pauldron
Je traduis un texte portant sur la bataille d'Azincourt. Il est ici question des "pauldrons", des protections pour les épaules faisant partie de l'armure des soldats.

Il est dit : "Pauldrons, shoulder defences extending over the chest and back, were very new at the time of Agincourt."

Après quelques recherches, j'ai pu voir à quoi ressemblait cet équipement, et ce qui s'en rapproche le plus serait "spalière" en français... Mais alors, il s'agit de "spaulder" (qui de plus, furent inventées bien avant Azincourt) !

Merci de votre aide
