Battle of Worringen by wraithdt Battle of Worringen by wraithdt
A piece I did back in 2012 for Medieval Warfare Magazine.

I'm not steeped in German Medieval history but I believe Worringen was one of many battles fought amongst Germans and men of the "Low Countries" within the Holy Roman Empire. The politics and fragmented nature of the empire seem to land itself quite frequently to internal conflicts between its autonomous rulers. This particular battle is between the Duke of Brabant (left) and the Count of Luxembourg (right) over the possession of the Duchy of Limburg.

More info on the battle here >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_o…

If any of you are interested you can check out the magazine here. Its a very interesting magazine if you're in to medieval history. >> [link]

You really drew the Battle of Worringen??? It is most famous here in my hometown Düsseldorf because it is the battle after which Count Adolf of Berg made Düsseldorf to a full town with all its right. So wow I'm amazed that you drew something we learned here already as little children :)

One more forgotten and forgettable battle that eventually changed nothing for the world but that changed everything for those involved.

Looks great! How did you tackle the chainmail? Seems like it could get pretty tedious.

Excellent use of color!  It adds to the chaotic and crowded nature of medieval battle!
