Historical Background

In European folklore, Joyeuse was the sword of Charlemagne (King of the Franks and Lombards from 768-814 AD), one of the few notable figures from Europe during the Dark Ages. It became popular in legends and tales during the Middle Ages. According to these stories, it was forged from the Spear of Longinus, whose blade was forged into the sword's pommel. In the Medieval story Song of Roland, the sword was said to change its color 30 times a day. It is supposedly buried with Charlemagne. Joyeuse means "joyful". The Spear of Longinus in the pommel is said to be the spear that pierced Jesus Christ while on the cross in Christian literature.

The Joyeuse is said to have been forged from the same steel and temper as the Durandal and the Cortana (Curtana).
