This Fleur de Lys steel dagger features a stylised fleur de lys pommel and crossguard. It is supplied with a scabbard and the metal fittings also feature the fleur de lys motif.
The fleur-de-lis has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, it is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context, and continues to appear in the arms of the King of Spain (from the French House of Bourbon dynasty) and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and members of the House of Bourbon.
It is an enduring symbol of France that appears on French postage stamps, although it has never been adopted officially by any of the French republics.
