Product Description

This ring represents the helmet of Gjergj Kastrioti, also known as Skanderbeg. He was the Albanian Prince who united all the Albanian landlords to fight against the most feared armies of the middle ages in Europe: The Ottoman Empire.

It personifies the symbol of freedom, unity, struggle and hope from the most epic battles of that time. This helmet was protected and passed down for centuries from Albanian noble Kastrioti family, to Italian families, to Austrian elite class.

This helmet was protected and passed down for centuries between Albanian, Italian, and Austrian families of the noble and elite class. The helmet is currently displayed at Kunsthistorisches Museum Wein in Vienna, Austria.

The helmet contains a goat above it, which is a symbol of power and strength, carried down for centuries among Illyrians, Spartans and Thracians tribes. Some of the most prominent military figures before Skanderbeg (such as Alexander the Great or Pyrrhus of Epirus) carried a ram or goat element on their helmets, identifying themselves as continuation of the same race and culture in Europe.

The banner inscriptions on the ring translate to: * IN * PE * RA * TO * RE * BT *, which in latin means: Jhezus Nazarenus * Principi Emathie * Regi Albaniae * Terrori Osmanorum * Regi Epirotarum * Benedictat Te.

Both sides of the ring contain a carving of Skanderbeg's coat of arms (a double-headed eagle) with the Star of David above it.

Skanderbeg had fought Ottoman Empire armies for 25 years undefeated, keeping Albania and Christian Europe free of Ottoman hordes, leaving an everlasting legacy throughout Europe and a profound impact on Albanian national, identity, unification and inspiration.

 

The ring is custom made per order. It takes 14 business days to create, plus shipping time.
