The sword of Godfrey of Bouillon on display in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Godfrey was a medieval Frankish knight who was one of the leaders of the First Crusade from 1096 until his death. Godfrey became the first ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, although he refused the title "King"; he believed that the true King of Jerusalem is Christ. The size of this sword is awesome. Try to think of fighting for a full day by wielding this weapon with one hand.
