No Arthurian legend would be complete without Excalibur. It is sometimes attributed with magical powers or associated with the rightful sovereignty of Great Britain. Sometimes Excalibur and the Sword in the Stone (the proof of Arthur's lineage) are said to be the same weapon, but in most versions they are considered separate. The sword was associated with the Arthurian legend very early. In Welsh, the sword is called Caledfwlch.

London - Mind the gap! As they say over there! Loved the Underground because it was so fast and easy. Got a shot of me in front of Parliament (where Big Ben is) right at noon when the bell started chiming.
