Joyeuse: The Sword of Charlemagne

Joyeuse is a legendary sword that once belonged to Charlemagne, King of the Franks and the first Holy Roman Emperor. Legends say that it was forged by the famed smith Galas over the course of three years, and was smithed from the same steel as Durandal/Durendal and Curtana. It is also said that it can change colors over thirty times a day, and contains a fragment of the Lance of Longinus in its pommel.

Although Joyeuse was almost certainly legendary, a sword identified as the Frankish king's famed blade was in the possession of the French monarchy for centuries. It was used as a coronation sword, reigning in French kings for many generations. After the French Revolution, the sword was moved to the Louvre as a museum piece, where it remains to this day.
