The sword was forged from a smooth, silver metal, with its cross guard shaped like an [[eagle]]'s wings, and the pommel in the motif of an eagle's head.

During his progression back into the higher ranks, Altaïr started off with a basic sword similar to his personal one, though it lacked a cross guard.

Ezio Auditore was able to purchase Altaïr's sword from the [[Blacksmiths|blacksmith]] of [[Monteriggioni]] for 45,000 florins, and made use of it when he fought [[Rodrigo Borgia]] in the [[Cappella Sistina|Sistine Chapel]].<ref name="AC2">''[[Assassin's Creed II]]''</ref>

He continued to use it as he escaped the [[Vaticano District|Vatican]] with his uncle [[Mario Auditore|Mario]]. During the [[House of Borgia|Borgia]]'s [[Fall of Monteriggioni|attack on Monteriggioni,]] however, he did not have time to re-equip it, resulting in its loss in the rubble of the [[Villa Auditore|Villa]], along with [[Armor of Altaïr|Altaïr's armor]] and Ezio's other weapons.<ref name="Brotherhood">''[[Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood]]''</ref>

Ezio kept the sword with him and used it to fight off [[House of Borgia|Borgia]] guards as he escaped the [[Vaticano District|Vatican]] with his uncle [[Mario Auditore]]. After they returned to Monteriggioni, the Borgia [[Siege of Monteriggioni|attacked the town]], and the sword was lost in the resulting turmoil, along with [[Armor of Altaïr|Altaïr's armor]] and Ezio's weapons that were fashioned from the [[Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's Codex|Codex]] designs by [[Leonardo da Vinci]].<ref name="ACB">''[[Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood]]''</ref>

Some time after establishing the [[Assassins Guild]] in Rome, Ezio was able to recover the sword once again after completing all five [[Guild challenges (Brotherhood)#Assassins Guild|Guild challenges]], although it is possible his [[Assassin apprentice|recruits]] retrieved it for him. Equipped with the sword, Ezio wielded it against [[Cesare Borgia]] and his forces during the [[siege of Viana]].<ref name="ACB" />
   
Though it is unknown what happened to the sword during Ezio's [[Pilgrimage to Masyaf|travels]] to [[Masyaf]] and Constantinople, he only began using it again some time after allying himself with the [[Turkish Assassins|Ottoman Assassins]], after completing the third series of the [[Assassin's Creed: Revelations Guild Challenges|Assassin's Guild Challenges]].<ref name="Revelations">''[[Assassin's Creed: Revelations]]''</ref>

Although he did not bring it with him on his expedition to Masyaf, Ezio eventually acquired the weapon yet again some time after he had allied himself with the [[Ottoman Brotherhood of Assassins|Ottoman Assassins]] in [[Constantinople]]. The sword became available once he had completed the third series of the [[Guild challenges (Revelations)|Guild challenges]], again, possibly due to him having his recruits retrieve it.<ref>''[[Assassin's Creed: Revelations]]''</ref>

Sword of Altairpng

The Sword of Altaïr

This article is about Altaïr's personal sword. You may be looking for the pair of swords used by Edward Kenway or the sword used by Shay Cormac.

The Sword of Altaïr was the personal sword of significant power wielded by Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad through much of his life as an Assassin.

During the Renaissance in Italy and Constantinople, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze, also made use of the weapon.

DesignEdit

The sword was forged from a smooth, silver metal, with its cross guard shaped like an eagle's wings, and the pommel in the motif of an eagle's head. Along with this, the sword's hilt was wrapped in strong, dark brown leather for gripping, and it was also stored in a leather scabbard, although this was only used by Masyaf guards and Altaïr himself.

HistoryEdit

High Middle AgesEdit

New regime 14

Altaïr wielding his sword in combat

Altaïr made good use of his sword throughout most of his early life as an Assassin. He wielded it with great skill and ease during missions such as the quest for the Chalice.[1]

By 1191, Altaïr had reached the rank of Master Assassin and he instead made use of a Syrian sword with a curved blade and a golden hilt. However, this sword was taken from him, along with his armor, other weapons and status after Al Mualim demoted him to the rank of novice for breaking all three tenets of the Creed.[2]

During his progression back into the higher ranks, Altaïr started with a basic sword similar to his personal one, though it lacked a cross guard. After he assassinated the first four of his nine assigned targets, another sword, this time with the cross guard shaped like an eagle's wings, was granted to him until finally, upon the seventh target, his personal sword was returned to him. The leather grip instead was replaced by a silver and light grey color with a tribal design. Altaïr used his sword once more in his battles until he finally rose again to the rank of Master Assassin, and the Syrian sword was awarded to him again.[2]

RenaissanceEdit

In Bocca Al Lupo 19

Ezio with the Armor and Sword of Altaïr

During the Renaissance, Ezio Auditore was able to purchase Altaïr's sword from the blacksmith in Monteriggioni for 45,000 florins. He made good use of the weapon in his battles, especially during his fight with Rodrigo Borgia in the Sistine Chapel in Rome.[3]

Ezio kept the sword with him and used it to fight off Borgia guards as he escaped the Vatican with his uncle Mario Auditore. After they returned to Monteriggioni, the Borgia attacked the town, and the sword was lost in the resulting turmoil, along with Altaïr's armor and Ezio's weapons that were fashioned from the Codex designs by Leonardo da Vinci.[4]

Some time after establishing the Assassins Guild in Rome, Ezio was able to recover the sword once again after completing all five Guild challenges, although it is possible his recruits retrieved it for him. Equipped with the sword, Ezio wielded it against Cesare Borgia and his forces during the siege of Viana.[4]

Although he did not bring it with him on his expedition to Masyaf, Ezio eventually acquired the weapon yet again some time after he had allied himself with the Ottoman Assassins in Constantinople. The sword became available once he had completed the third series of the Guild challenges, again, possibly due to him having his recruits retrieve it.[5]
