Barbarian Sword. History - legend - movies (Conan), etc. remind us of the Slavic, Germanic and French tribes that swept Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries, leading to conquering Rome itself. Called by its barbaric civilized customs, this term came to have connotations of evil, for its wild and inhospitable nature.
In a world in which force was the law, swords were strong and powerful, a sign of authority and respect. This group of tribes and prevailed in a fragmented Europe and without a strong political organization until the beginning of the Carolingian Empire.
