Maximilian I of Habsburg was a great lover of arms and armor; he even designed some elaborately fluted armor that has since been named for him. More impressively, he was never one to hold back when a good fight came his way. In 1479, during the War of Burgundian Succession, King Louis XI invaded the Burgundian lands. He was met by the Burgundian Infantry and Archduke Maximillian, who fought on foot with his infantry rather than riding with the cavalry as was the custom for high-ranking noblemen. In the short, bloody battle, the French fled and Maximilian came off victorious. His valor at the Battle of Guinegate inspired us in the naming of this beautiful sword.More information
