The Pickelhaube was designed by Friedrich Wilhelm IV and adopted by the Prussia Army in 1842. It was first worn on active duty in 1849, during the suppression of an uprising in Baden. The helmet was modified several times, mostly as a result of field experience garnered during the Austro-Prussian and Franco-Prussian wars. The kingdom of Bavaria, retaining some measure of independence, was the last of the German states to adopt the Pickelhaube, doing so in 1886.
