The Royal Swordsman Helm is a head armor piece in Dark Souls II. It is part of the Royal Swordsman Set.

In-Game Description

Helmet of a royal swordsman.
Its shape provides defense while allowing great mobility. Stripped of ornamentation, this particular helm is designed strictly for battle.
King Vendrick supplied his bravest men with the best armor available to face the great giants, but very few returned alive.


Drops from the Royal Swordsmen in The Lost Bastille, Shrine of Winter, and Drangleic Castle.


This item is based off the Sallet, a helmet popular around the fifteenth century, especially in Germany.
