San Fernando Sword

Son of King Alphonse IX of Leon and Queen Berenquela of Castilla, Fernanco III the Saint unified both kingdoms under his crown. Promoter of the process of reconquest, he conquered, among others, the town of Sevilla, capital of th the region, and Cordoba, whose mosque he transformed into a cathedral. His son, Alphonse X, is believed to have possessed this sword too, and was one of the great cultural promoters of the middle ages. In one of his books, "Las Siete Partidas", he described the four values every sword should bear: Good Sense, Strength, Prudence, and Justice. Saint Ferdinand III was the King of Castile from 1217 and King of Leon from 1230. Through his second marriage he was also Count of Aumale. Saint Ferdinand III finished the work done by his maternal grandfather Alfonso VIII and consolidated the Reconquista against the Moors. In 1231, he permanently united Castile and Leon. He was canonized in 1671 and, in Spanish, he is Fernando el Santo or San Fernando. More information...
