The Chinese were producing metal foot stirrups made of Cast Iron or Bronze in 250 CE. Well before the concept reached Europe in 570 CE, via the Byzantine Empire. The earliest mention of stirrups in Europe was in the military manual called “Strategikon”, written by a Byzantine General (later emperor) Mauricius Flavins Tiberius in 580 CE. By the 8th Century, the Viking raiders had adopted them and brought them to the Western and Northern Europe.
