Great Captain Sword

Marto-Windlass

Córdoba was a pioneer of modern warfare. He helped found the first modern standing army (the nearly-invincible Spanish infantry which dominated European battlefields for most of the 16th and 17th centuries). Córdoba directed the first battle in history won by gunpowder small arms (the Battle of Cerignola). At the end of the battle, he issued a call to prayer (toque de oracion, adopted later for all Western armies); "when Córdoba saw the fields full of French bodies, he ordered the playing of three long tones and prayers for the fallen"

Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, was a Spanish general who fought in the Conquest of Granada and the Italian Wars. He reorganized the emerging Spanish army and its tactics, and was regarded as the "father of trench warfare". He was also called "The Great Captain". Many influential men fought under him (including Francisco Pizarro's father), and he was admired by the generation of conquistadors which followed.

He left no sons, and was succeeded in his dukedoms by daughter Elvira Fernández de Córdoba. Córdoba's extensive knowledge was passed on to the next generation through the men who served under him.
