spacer Charlemagne's Joyeuse
"Joyeuse" the sword of the Charles the Great/Charlemagne, features in poems and legends about the historical Charlemagne and has taken on a mythic life of its own. According to the later chansons de geste, the Emperor Charlemagne's sword was called "Joyeuse" (joyful) and was the greatest sword ever made.The Eleventh Century Song of Roland describes the Emperor riding into battle in splendid war panoply, with Joyeuse by his side, saying "never was there a sword to match it; its colour changed thirty times a day"
According to the legends, it was forged by the famous smith Galas and took him three years to complete. Amongst its alleged magical properties was an ability to blind its wielder's enemies with a bright radiance in battle and the ability to protect its wearer from all poisons. One story tells of how Charlemagne once lost Joyeuse and promised a great reward to whoever found it. One of his knights returned it to the king who stuck it in the ground and declared the lands around that spot to belong to the knight from that point onward. According to the story, this is the origin of the French town of Joyeuse, which was founded on that spot and named in honour of the sword.
