Sword 'of Charlemagne' (11th century; scabbard 14th?)
This sword was (erroneously, given its vintage) connected to Charlemagne. The fleurs-de-lys set into the velvet covering of the scabbard show its connection to the Capetians, who used this device from the thirteenth century forward. The scabbard is probably 14th-century work—perhaps from the time of Charles V?
