Historical Background[edit]

In European folklore, Curtana was the sword of Edward the Confessor (King of Anglo-Saxon England from 1042-1066 AD, the 2nd to last Anglo-Saxon ruler before the Normans invaded and took over in 1066AD). The ceremonial sword is used at the coronation of British monarchs. The sword has a dull edge and is said to be an emblem of mercy. It is said to be forged using the same steel and temper as Durandal and Joyeuse.

Cortana (spelled with an o in this instance) was also, according to legend, the sword of Ogier the Dane; it bore the inscription "My name is Cortana, of the same steel and temper as Joyeuse and Durandal"
