Greenwich armour was a distinctively English style of plate armour of the 16th and 17th centuries, produced by the Royal Armoury founded by Hennry VIII in 1525 in Greenwich. The armoury's name came from the German master armourers hired by Henry VIII. During the 16th century the armoury was traditionally headed by Germans - the most notable armourer of the Greenwich workshop was Jacob Halder, who was master of the armoury from 1576 to 1607.
