I am trying to find any zweihanders/2-handed swords which are marked (eg with coats of arms) as belonging to the bodyguard of anyone notable - anyone rich and powerful enough to afford a bodyguard. I know of the swords of Duke Julius of Brunswick's Guard (I have located 43 of these so far) and those of Markus Sittikus, Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg, but cannot find any others. There are loads of halberds, glaives, partizans marked to the Guards of numerous princes, dukes etc, and individual 2-handers associated with particular nobles but no other bodyguard 2-handers. They must have existed and some of you experts must have come across some, so let me know, please. Many thanks.
Neil

Bumping this query in case there is anyone out there who might have some info but missed seeing it first time round.
Thanks, Neil
