The Sword of Temporal Justice
- Maker: Zandona Ferrara (bladesmith, active circa 1600)
- Additional creators: Rundell Bridge & Rundell (jeweller)
- Dated: 1821 (scabbard)
- Medium: iron, steel, copper, wood with scabbard of leather, velvet, silver gilt
- Measurements: 116.5 x 99.3 cm
- Acquirer: Charles I, King of Great Britain (1600-49), when King of Great Britain (1625-49)
- Provenance: probably supplied for the coronation of Charles I in 1626
The sword has a gilt-iron hilt with a wooden, wire-bound grip, the steel blade tapering to a leaf-shaped point; symbols like open lozenges are stamped in the gutters with the maker’s name. Velvet-covered leather scabbard with gold embroidery and silver-gilt mounts.
This sword, known as the Sword of Temporal Justice, is one of three swords which are carried unsheathed, pointing upwards, in the coronation procession.
This sword is accompanied by the Sword of Spiritual Justice and the Sword of Mercy (with a blunted tip). The practice of carrying three swords, representing kingly virtues, dates back to the coronation of Richard the Lionheart in 1189.
The three swords were made for the coronation of Charles I in 1626 and then placed with the regalia in Westminster Abbey. Together with the coronation spoon, these three works were the only pieces to survive the Civil War and Interregnum untouched.
It is not known whether they were used in the coronation procession of Charles II, but they have certainly been used since 1685. A new scabbard was made for the sword in 1821 for the coronation of George IV.
