Imperial Armoury, Hofburg Palace. Vienna

Thought I'd post up a few more photos from this years Vienna trip. These were all taken in the Imperial Armoury. Another one of Vienna's quite vast military museums. Again, definitely worth a visit.
Armour of Alessandro Farnese (1545-1592). Duke of Parma and Piacenza. Fought at the Battle of Lepanto (1571).

Armour of Ferdinand V. Konig of Aragon and Sicily (1452 - 1516). Designed by 'Meister P'. Italian/Spanish style dating from 1490 to 1500 period.

Sword of Kaiser Friedrich III (1415-1493)
