Excalibur – The Sword of Chivalry
Nimue forged Excalibur in her castle on the shores of L'étang de Comper in Brocéliande forest using the hide of a dragon, which makes it the finest sword there has ever been. Excalibur can slice through iron as through metal as well withstand the force of any weapon used against it.
Nimue bestowed Excalibur on Arthur shortly after his reign began after Caliburn broke when he inadvertently used it to attack King Pellinore.
Following his defeat at the Battle of Camlann, Arthur ordered Bedivere to throw the sword into the enchanted lake and, after two failed attempts, he finally complied with the wounded king’s request and Nimue’s hand emerged from the lake to catch it.
Excalibur symbolizes the codes of chivalry.
