Important Notice: We purchased and installed this classified ads software because we thought it would be a genuine enhancement to the GT classified ads system. I still believe it is a far better alternative for a classified ads section than the forum software, but people just don't seem to agree. I had hoped that people would take to the system and see its benefits after having used it for a while, but that hasn't happened.

So, I am going to admit defeat and move the classified ads section back onto the old message board forums. Posting permissions have been turned off in this software and the old classified ads forums have been reactivated. We will leave this software up through 27 June, 2014, so that people can refer to the old ads. Please place all new ads in the classified ads forums. They can be found on GT's forums index, below the Armory section. Here is a direct link to that area: The Want Ads Forums.

In the coming weeks, we will be adding some features to the classified ads forums that will make them better suited for that purpose, while keeping the features and functionality of that system that people have shown they want.

Please keep in mind that all forum rules apply to the classified ads threads. Additionally, do not post in someone's ad to haggle or arrange a deal. Please contact them directly to negotiate. Also, if you think you know where someone can get the advertised item cheaper, or you think the person is charging too much, or you don't like the product or seller, etc..., please keep it to yourself. Posting such things in someone else's classified ad thread is not allowed. If you see anyone violating the posting rules, or know of or suspect that there is a problem with a post or thread, please report the thread or post. Thanks and enjoy the new/old system.

Item: Sword of Roland (Roldan) by Marto of Toledo Spain

I will entertain trade offers!!!!!


As told in the Matter of France, Durandal is the name of the sword of Charlemagne's paladin Roland (Roldan). According to Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando Furioso it once belonged to Hector of Troy, and was given to Roland by Malagigi. In The Song of Roland, the sword is said to contain within its hilt one tooth of Saint Peter, blood of Saint Basil, hair of Saint Denis, and a piece of the raiment of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the poem, during the Roncesvalles battle (August 15th 778) Charlemagne's troops, coming back from the siege of Saragossa, were ambushed by 100,000 Saracens helped by moors. Count Roland, fighting a loosing rear guard action for the Frank army, attempts to destroy the sword to prevent it from being captured by the ambushing Saracens and creates La Brèche de Roland, a pass on the Pirenees, in the process. But Durendal proves indestructible, so he hurls it into a poisoned stream instead. Local folklore claims Durendal still exists, preserved in Rocamadour, France. An inscription on Ogier the Dane's sword Curtana read My name is Cortana, of the same steel and temper as Joyeuse and Durendal.

The Sword of Roland by Marto of Toledo Spain has a tempered steel blade, ornamented with 24K Gold engravings on the upper part. The 24K Gold plated cast metal hilt has the quillons, in the design of twin Lions heads, bended toward the blade with a heraldic shield and crest centered. The leaf-shaped pommel and is decorated with relief figures.


  • Overall Length: 117 cms - 46 inches

  • Blade: Tempered AISI 440 Stainless Steel - 24K Gold etching

  • Handle: Zamak - 24K Gold plated

NOTE: This weapon/sword I am selling is a OFFICIALLY licensed Authentic Marto Sword. This is not one of those imitations, counterfeits, or a knockoff!

The original packaging to this sword is not included. I carried this sword out of the show room in Spain. There was never any packaging included with this item. They wrapped it in paper and placed it in a blank card board box. The item is new and has never been used. It has just been in my closet ever since its purchase.
