Hi Eran & welcome aboard.
The first sword is a Mexican Espada Ancha variant. The index finger ring is a mexican characteristic, we can see it usually on daggers and bowie knives. The brass guard and screws lend me to think this is not very old and may be something of semi-official issue. Most non-regulation mexican swords were made with iron fittings.

As for the other sword, I have to take a dive into some books. The heart-shaped apperture looks familiar but I can't place a finger.
Double welcome :D

The second sword appears to be a British Heavy Cavalry Dress Sword from early 19th c. which has lost its grip covering.
