English term or phrase: King's Champion
Description of armour:

"Armour
The two complete suits of fluted armour at the top of the stairs date from 1520 and were possibly looted from the Elector of Bavaria by Napoleon. They came from the famous Meyrick Collection at Goodrich Court in Herefordshire.

One suit was worn by the ***King's Champion*** at the last Coronation Banquet held on the accession of George IV."

Explanation:
würde ich auch als Ehrentitel stehen lassen. Im MA war der "King's Champion" der Kämpfer in einem Turnier, der für den König in die Schranken trat. Beim Krönungsbankett von Georg IV. von Engl. wurde sicherlich kein Turnier mehr abgehalten - das war da längst aus der Mode.
