i'm surprised no ones posted here yet since there have been a ton of discussions on the swords in multiple threads. let me just point out the sword that were already mentiuoned in the book/s
I haven't really done too muuch digging on the subject. but based on the series Excalibur and Joyeuse are the same. The series ofcourse says that Charlemagne weilded both Joyeuse and Clarent at a time. Swords of Ice and Fire.
digging on Durendal and Tyrfing will sat that both are symbolic of fire. Are these other names for Clarent?
digging on Mistelteinn and Curtana is a bit tricky. Accounts on Mistelteinn/Mystiltenn does not compliment ech other at times. it is called The Sword of Victory, although not all the battles proved vctorious to Hotherus, its weildr, against Baldur. (also an interesting attribute: made of a stick - misletoe)
another account goes to say that, in one battle Hotherus lost the sword in a body of water and later found in the stomach of a pike. similar to how anothe sword (kusanagi) was found. in the stomach of a snake.
Curtana/Cortana is the Sword of Mecry once weilded by Edward the Confessor of England. a notable quality of this sword is the blades material, similar to that of two swords previously mentioned - Joyeuse and Durendal.
are the Durendal and Cortana the sword of Earth and air respectively?
