Oliver Cromwell (1599 - 1658) was a powerful figure in English history during
and after the English Civil War, when he rose from the rank of Captain of Horse
to Lord Protector of England.
His sword, said to have been carried at the battle of Drogheda in 1649, has been remarkably well preserved and features in the collection of the Royal Armouries in Leeds, England, where it is displayed in the permanent collection.
Our Cromwell Sword is an accurate replica of the original "mortuary" hilt style and features a blackened guard decorated in a gold foliage pattern with a wire-wound sharkskin grip.
As the original sword now lacks a scabbard, we have provided a design typical of the period.
This piece of English history is a must.
