In medieval weaponry, the breastplate is the front portion of plate armourá covering the torso. It has been a military mainstay since ancient times and was one of the last pieces of functional armour to be abandoned with the development of firearms, because it protected the vital organs without limiting mobility. They were usually made of leather, bronze or iron in antiquity, of iron during the Migration Period, and then steel during the Middle Ages and ever since.
