Archsword in the Stone

Archsword rank:

Known throughout the history as: Sword in the Stone

Archsword Possessor(s): King Arthur

Sword in the Stone, a sword in the Arthurian legend which only the rightful king of Britain can pull from the stone; sometimes associated with Excalibur. In Mallory, the sword in the stone is not Excalibur and is not named. When the sword is broken in a fight with King Pellinore, the Lady of the Lake gives him Excalibur as a replacement. At Arthur’s death, Excalibur is returned to the Lady of the lake by Sir Bedivere.
