“El Montante” – Background and theory

Set in historical context whose mention appeared in the castilian language for the first time in the late fifteenth century in the book of chivalry “La crónica de Adramón” and designates a sword that is used with two hands. However, at the same time the term “two-handed sword” is also used. Are we talking about different swords, different handles?

This conference will raise the historical issues of the weapon that will serve as a theoretical basis for the practical work of the next day.
