Our Sword of Catholic Kings by Marto is one of the most spectacular swords in Spanish History. With this sword, the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, knighted Christopher Columbus on his return from his first voyage to America. In the Throne Hall of the Royal Palace in Barcelona, Columbus was named "Admiral of the Ocean" and "Viceroy of the Indies". 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.
