The Limited Edition Miniature Bronze El Cid Colada Sword, by Marto, is a miniature replica of a sword that belonged to the Castilian knight Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, known as El Cid Campeador in the 11th century. He was the prototype of the knight and a loyal vassal who took part with his king, Alphonse VI, in the conquest of Toledo. El Cid was a war hero, who apparently never lost a battle. His title, El Cid Campeador, derives from El Cid, a Moorish title of respect derived from the Arabic al sayyid, while Campeador is Spanish for Champion. The Miniature Bronze El Cid Colada Sword has a double-edged Toledo steel blade. The hilt is silver-plated cast-metal, with twisted quillions, and a knuckle-guard, featuring a grip wrapped in metal string with a spherical pommel.
