The El Cid Tizona Sword is a reproduction of a sword that belonged to the Castilian knight Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, known as 'El Cid Campeador' in the 11th century. He was the prototype of the knight and a loyal vassal who took part with his king, Alphonse VI, in the conquest of Toledo. El Cid was a war hero, who apparently never lost a battle. His title, El Cid Campeador, derives from: 'El Cid', a Moorish title of respect, from Arabic al sayyid 'Lord'; 'Campeador' is Spanish for 'Champion'. The El Cid Tizona Sword has a double-edged tempered steel blade, etched in 24K Gold on the upper part. The hilt is nickel-plated cast-metal, with a two-lobe shaped pommel and downward curved quillons on the guard, which enlarge at their ends as leaves.
