The Catholic Kings Sword by Marto is a reproduction of the great sword kept in the Real Armeria in Madrid, made in the 15th century during the reign of Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabelle of Castile, and used in solemn court occasions until the 18th century. The Catholic Kings Sword by Marto is one of the most spectacular swords in Spanish History. With this sword, the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella knighted Christopher Columbus on his return from his first voyage to America. This ceremonial sword was used as the symbol of the royal power in all religious and political ceremonies, since the conquest of Grenada and the beginning of Spain as a nation. Engraved on the hilt is the moto Tanto Monta, Monta Tanto. The motto refers to both of the Catholic monarchs, Isabella and Ferdinand, and loosely translates to As Much As The One Is Worth, So Much Is The Other, meaning that both King and Queen held equal authority. A stunning piece made with strong steel and shining gold-plating, the Catholic King Sword by Marto is an unbelievably stunning piece that would find an eager home in any collection.
