Historical Background[edit]


The Erlking (German: Erlkönig, "Alder King") is a character depicted in a number of German poems and ballads as a malevolent creature who haunts forests and carries off travelers to their deaths. The name is an 18th-century mistranslation of the original Danish word elverkonge, "elf-king". The character is most famous as the antagonist in Goethe's poem "Der Erlkönig" and Schubert's musical adaptation of the same name.


A Tabar (more commonly called a tabar zin or tabar-i-zin (sometimes translated "saddle-hatchet") is the traditional battle axe of Persia and Iran. It bears one or two crescent-shaped blades. The long form of the tabar was about seven feet long, while a shorter version was about three feet long. What made the Persian axe unique is the very thin handle, which is very light and always metallic. The tabar is sometimes carried as a symbolic weapon by wandering dervishes (Muslim ascetic worshipers)."Tabar" means axe, and "zin" has to do with hanging from a horse. Some sources say that zin comes from "zar", the ancient word for war.
