Carl Emil Doepler was born March, 1824 and died on August, 1905 in Berlin. Doepler studied art in Munich in 1849 but traveled to New York. After six years in the new country Doepler returned home.

Doepler 1870 received the title of professor. Even the murals of wealthy individuals did Doepler. Richard Wagner and Doepler met and it was determined that Doepler would make the costumes for Wagner’s operas to be played at the premiere in Bayreuth 1876th

Doepler made a solid groundwork, about 500 drawings were made and archaeological studied. Unfortunately, it was often unsorted finds from ancient times as well as the Migration Period and the early middle Ages that served as inspiration. It’s Carl Emil Doepler who has the dubious honor since the late 1800s been the one who provided our ancestors the Vikings with horns, wings and other trappings of the helmets. Perhaps it already had any artist devoted himself to such a thing before, but now it became legion to do such depictions.
