Medieval tournament melee - would you give it a try? 🤔
Melee is a modern term for a type of mock combat in medieval tournament. The "melee" was the "mass tournament" where two teams of horsemen clashed in formation. The aim was to smash into the enemy in massed formation, with the aim of throwing them back or breaking their ranks. Following a successful maneuver of this kind, the rank would attempt to turn around without breaking formation (widerkere or tornei); this action was so central that it would gave the name to the entire tradition of the tourney or tournament by the mid-12th century. Duels with the aim to strike off the opponent's helmet decoration were also common.
