Elephant Armor for a Horse


The Mughal Empire and Mewar clashed in 1576 at the Battle of Haldighati. Maharana Pratap, the ruler of Mewar, rode into battle on his famous warhorse, Chetak. Pratrap equipped his horse with armor that made him resemble an elephant in the hope of confusing enemy war elephants.
