Sword of Holy Roman emperor Maximilian I - Germany, 1496 - Adhipics
Maximilian I was the German king (1486-1519) and Holy Roman emperor who established the Habsburg dynasty as an international European power.

In 1477 he married Mary, daughter of Charles the Bold, duke of Burgundy, but his right to the Burgundian realm was challenged by the French king, Louis XI. Maximilian successfully defended his wife's inheritance in a war with France that lasted until 1493.

Although the majority of his surviving armors were designed for tournaments, this sword is among the few extant swords known to have belonged to him.

Now on display at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Wien
