The Miniature Bronze Sword of Catholic Kings, by Marto, is a miniature replica of the sword kept in the Real Armeria in Madrid, made in the 15th century during the reign of Ferdinand II and Isabelle and used for court occasions until the 18th century. This ceremonial sword was used as the symbol of the royal power in all religious and political ceremonies since the conquest of Grenada and the beginning of Spain as a nation. Engraved on the hilt is the moto Tanto Monta, Monta Tanto. The motto refers to both of the Catholic monarchs, Isabella and Ferdinand, and loosely translates to As Much As The One Is Worth, So Much Is The Other, meaning that both King and Queen held equal authority. A stunning replica that has lost none of the beautiful detail while being miniaturized, the Miniature Bronze Sword of Catholic Kings, by Marto, is worthy of any collection.
