The Blue Crown



The Blue Crown

The Blue Crown was also known as the 'war crown' or the Khepresh crown.

It was probably made from cloth or leather, then painted blue. Sometimes it was decorated with golden discs and a twisting royal uraeus usually adorned the front.

It is a military helmet and is often worn during battles and hunting.

Rameses II was depicted wearing this crown in a famous painting to celebrate his victory over the Hittites.
