Sancho IV Sword

Please note: This is just an ornamental item, not intended for real use!

Given the dimensions of the grip, it corresponds to the hand of a man of medium build, so Sancho IV judging by his remains was a frankly tall man. This suggests whether the Sword like the crown, was inherited from his father as was customary.

Pommel - All chiseled showing in the two circles of their faces beautiful arabic designs and on the lateral surfaces of the cones the same motifs are repeated as in the cross

High-quality Sword of the Exclusive Collection "Historical, Fantastic and Legend Swords" made by MARTO®

Including Certificate of Quality and Origin, Made in Toledo (Spain)

Sancho IV of Castile (1258 – 1295) called "el Bravo", was the King of Castile, León and Galicia. He took control of the kingdom when his father Alfonso X died in 1284. This was all against the wishes of their father, but Sancho was crowned in Toledo nevertheless. Just before succumbing to a fatal illness, he appointed his wife, María de Molina, to act as regent for his nine-year-old son, Ferdinand IV. He died in 1295 in Toledo.

At his death, the body of Sancho IV was buried in the Cathedral of Toledo, thus fulfilling the will of the monarch.

In 1947 the remains of the mummified king were found, in good condition, the sovereign carrying a Franciscan habit attached with a Franciscan cord. The sovereign, who in life had to exceed two meters tall, wore a crown of silver gilt adorned with Roman cameos and sapphires. Next to the corpse a Sword with an overgrown handle, and on the blade of the sword an inscription was engraved, of which only a few fragments were preserved, were engraved.

The sword is an important finding, it is a classic sword of the Middle Ages, S.XIII, cut and tip.

The sword was found in excellent condition. It is a sumptuous weapon for its time, worthy of a Castilian monarch.

It is exposed to the public in the Tapestry Museum of the Cathedral of Toledo, along with the crown and pillow of the same trousseau.

Blade-Highlights the fineness of scuffing and mirror polishing

Grip- The grip decoration to match the rest of the weapon and the shield of Castilla y León
