A 900-year-old sword was discovered in a cold tomb, and its owner was undoubtedly a crusader knight.
The sword, which was found by the discovery team of archaeological excavationists in Hreival le Bocageach, Angers in the Brittany region of France, has been reconstructed, and will be displayed in a special exhibition.

The sword was discovered by divers during the underwater excavation, which was part of the retrospective, “Significance of Angelique de Mulas,” held at the Marseille underwater Museums Center, the maritime archaeology and heritage laboratory of the local city of Boulogne, French news agency AFP reported.
Besides the sword, which was found in “three-dimensional fragments,” the team also found a collection of ingredients that could have been used for making alcohol and a screwdriver, perhaps in order to hurt enemies or misbehave, according to the ministry of culture in Marseille.
The sword’s owner is unknown.
Palaeontologists also believe that the sword was fired by the eagle.
The archaeological excavation took place on sites named in honor of the Angelique de Mulas, who ruled as queen of the Rebellious Cathars in Brittany during the 12th century. She was known for having survived crucifixion, but later died at the hands of King Vannes de Nicole, who took power after the crusading Michael de Vattel, who had led a few battles in Europe in the 13th century.
Her accomplishments during her lifetime are various. She owned elephants, and had a lifetime marriage to Laetitia de Mulas, which lasted for 58 years. Later, she married Prince Diossa, in what was called the “karate romance,” which also lasted for 58 years.
Now the excavators are seeking to save what remains of the illustrious king by keeping him preserved and in the public eye.
Angelique de Mulas is considered to be the most powerful woman in Brittany and France, and might be the only ruler who lived to have a permanent mosque built after her.
The amulet, which inspired such devotion to her, was discovered by the excavation in 2000 in a small lane situated on Saint Aubin-sur-Tour, but it remained buried for almost 600 years, in a tomb supposedly used as the last resting place of Armand de Mulas, who was a figure associated with the crusades and the Cathars.
Meanwhile, the excavators also did not find proof of de Vattel’s tomb, which is also unknown and may have been the old site of St. Aubin-sur-Tour, according to France 24.
As for the skeleton of an ancient skeleton found in the cave where the excavators discovered the cannon, fragments of a red skull, few ribs and vertebrae, the island of Cleisthenes, the area is therefore speculated to be the burial place of Vattel, the archeologist said.
