Norman lord of Southern Italy Prince Tancred (known in French as Tancrède de Hauteville) was one of the first noblemen to join the 1096 Crusades. Under pressure to swear an oath to Byzantine Emperor Alexius I Comnenus he refused so he would not have to turn over any conquered lands to the Emperor. Prince Tancred saw considerable victories fighting alongside his Uncle Bohemund on this bloody campaign, and after the fall of Jerusalem he acquired the title Prince of Galilee. Our exquisite Sword of Tancred has been researched from this legendary knight’s adventures.
The pommel has a representation of the red Nurit flower of Galilee on the one side, while the opposite is adorned with the crusader cross, which Tancred adopted during the Crusades. The Tancred sword has a hard wooden handle covered with soft, deep brown stitched leather, accented with antique brass details. The imposing 2" wide 1085 high carbon steel blade has a deep fuller running the length, giving great balance to this mighty sword. Included is a period stitched scabbard in matching brown suede with integral leather long belt intertwines into the sheath.
