It is the most spectacular swords in the History of Spain. The Catholic Monarchs' original sword is one of the most emblematic objects of the Real Spanish Army. It is a replica of the mythical sword which the Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella, named Columbus Gentleman with after his return from the first trip to.
In the Throne Room of the Real Palace in Barcelona, Columbus was named "Admiral of the Ocean" and "Viceroy of the Indies". The sword is called "ceremony" because it appears in the inventory of assets of King Charles I, best known as the List of Valladolid (1558), and in the inventory of the Real Army (1594).
This sword is called "Ceremony" and was used as "Standard bearer" in all religious ceremonies or significant public events of their reign, such as the Conquest of Granada and the beginning of Spain as a nation. Until the eighteenth century it was used in ceromonies at Court, as investitures of knights, oaths of Princes of Asturias or the triumphal arrival to the Monarchs in the cities.
There is an amazing commemorative sword of the Discovery of America, made in Toledo with a stainless steel blade, a hilt covered in velvet, a guard and a loop with golden finish together with inscriptions referred to this historic event.
The surviving states were called Hellenistic kingdoms, which kept during the following centuries the idea of Alexander of moving the Greek culture into the East, at the time when they let other eastern cultures intrude into the Mediterranean.
