This knightly sword is named for Sir William Marshall, one of the most celebrated of all knights. Originally a younger son of a minor knight and without land or fortune to inherit, he would leave England for France to try his hand and luck. William first made his mark on the world with his outstanding tournament career in France; Hundreds of knights were bested by him in the war games that constituted the tournament. At this time in the 12th century, one-on-one jousts were rare; instead the tournament was a technically non-lethal skirmish between two teams of knights. Usually fought over a ranged countryside, the knights could take one another prisoner, whereby they would be ransomed for their arms, armor or horse to their captor. The young William Marshall must have amassed an impressive fortune by this manner!

Upon returning to England he would join the household of the King Henry II as both warrior and advisor. He would serve three more kings of England; Richard the Lionheart, King John and Henry III. His esteemed position would see him granted lands and estates, most notably being granted the title Earl of Pembroke - overnight the landless knight became one of the wealthiest men in England

He remained loyal to King John during the Baronís revolt, whereby the Barony, supported by the King of France would force Johnís hand to agree to the terms of the Magna Carta. After Johnís death, Williamís loyalty would be rewarded with becoming advisor and regent to the young Henry III until he came of age. As regent, he continued the war with Louis VIII and Englandís rebel barons - Now at the age of 70, he would famously charge into battle at Lincoln Castle, his warhost defeating the French and ending their influence in England.

At his deathbed in 1219, the aged William Marshall was inducted into the Knights Templar, and his tomb remains in the sepulchre of Londonís Temple Church.

This sword by Deepeeka is fashioned into the form of the simple, cruciform-hilted swords of Marshallís era. The blade is made of high carbon steel. The crossguard and pommel are of steel and the grip is tightly wrapped in form-fitting brown leather. The wood-core scabbard is likewise covered in tightened leather and has two brass rings to hang the scabbard upon.
