Targe is an old term for a shield. In the closer sense targe might either refer to a medium sized rectangular or oval shield type with a central grip or a small-sized roundshield type, similar to a larger buckler. Targe could also be applied to late rectangular-shaped tournament or jousting shields.

Targes were used by the Edain of Hithlum and the elves of Doriath.
