This square medieval tent offers enough space for any purpose, whether as a medieval market stall, a baldachin or canopy for sun protection (without side walls) or as as sleeping tent for about 8 occupants with their respective belongings and gear. The pelmet running all the way around makes it a real eye-catcher. With a few helping hands, the tent can be set up and dismantled in next to no time. Due to the high side walls, you have enough headroom wherever you stand. This knight’s tent is a true all-rounder. The two individually detachable side walls can be easily removed or attached with hooks and eyelets and give you the freedom to leave one side or the other open, or to just leave both walls out and use the tent as a baldachin.
The knight’s tent Markward is treated against mildew and mould. Thanks to its particular weave (twill), the 100% cotton canvas is exceptionally tear-resistant and virtually impervious to water, making this medieval tent an indispensable piece of equipment for medieval markets, military camps or LARP events.
Our tents and tarpaulins have already been waterproofed. In order to maintain / restore the water repellency of your tent or tarp and enjoy its use for a long time, we recommend regular treatment with a waterproofing spray, for example PLUVONIN.
The tent is supplied as a complete set, i.e. with poles and accessories.

All measurements are approximate and may differ from the actual product supplied. The tents are crafted by hand, which lends them an authentic appearance on the one hand, but may also result in one or two small defects on the other hand. Cotton is a natural material that reacts differently depending on the various outside conditions and can considerably shrink or expand. As a result, the iron poles included in delivery may not fit straightaway into the designated holes. It might in certain cases be necessary to somewhat shorten the poles to size. Please do not try to stretch the tent skin by force, as it increases the risk of the canvas tearing or the stitches snapping.
Important information on assembly, handling and maintenance of our historical tents:
You can prolong the life of your Viking tent, Roman tent, Saxon tent, Knights tent, medieval tent, trade tent or medieval market stall and enjoy its use for a further long time by observing the following precautions:
Do not overstretch the ropes, for natural materials such as wood or cotton alter under the influence of air humidity and need space to contract and expand. You may thus avoid e.g. that the roof holes for the poles get distended and ultimately facilitate water ingress. We recommend slightly slackening the ropes in the evening, for air humidity considerably rises at night and may increase the risk of excessive stress exerted on your tent. The ropes should also be somewhat slackened in rain or high atmospheric humidity. If the tent has been exposed to humidity, we strongly advise you to dry it after use, as it is otherwise likely to mould. Do not, on any account, use detergents or any other cleaning products to clean your tent. The best way to remove dried out dirt is to use a brush. As for the storage of your tent over an extended period of time, please separate all accessories (pegs, ropes, etc.) from the tent itself and preferably pack everything separately. Make sure that all items are dry and stored in a dry place.
