The Miniature Bronze El Cid Tizona 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 from the Arabic al sayyid, while Campeador is Spanish for Champion. The Miniature Bronze El Cid Tizona Sword has a double-edged blade. The hilt is stylish and ornate, with a guard made up of a pair of quillions that curve downward, enlarging into leaves at their ends, while the pommel is a round structure with twin-lobes.
