The pauldron is a laminated plate defence for the shoulder. Much larger than the spaulder it could also protect the armpits negating the need for besagews. The pauldron could sometimes cover the shoulder blades to the point where some examples might cross over each other.

This piece of armour appears in the mid-15th century and survive until the disappearance of plate armour.
