Hi all

I am interested if the crossquard and the pommel as well as the sword's blade are all original from the 13th century?
I found an information that it has been rehilted in the XVI century.


Thanks

A really interesting blade. I''ve never seen another inscribed along the fuller like that- at least in the 12th or 12th C.

This refers to the so-called Lobera sword (formerly confused with the Colada of El Cid) and not the sword in the photograph. The latter is however also attributed to Fernando III (or his son).
