the royal steel

The Steel Crown of Romania was forged of the steel of a cannon captured by the Romanian Army from the Ottomans during the War of Independence. King Carol I chose steel, and not gold, to symbolize the bravery of the Romanian soldiers. It was used at the coronation of King Carol I in 1881, King Ferdinand I and King Mihai I. The crown can be seen at the National Museum of Romanian History in Bucharest.

European (Bohemian, possibly Prague) ceremonial arrowheads, 1437–39, steel, copper alloy, originally mounted on wooden shafts, extremely large, probably symbols of rank or batons of command, decorated with royal Bohemian monograms “AR” for Albert, king of Bohemia and Hungary (reigned 1437–39), and badges in addition to religious invocations in medieval Czech.

Ottoman shamshir, 19th Century,  Iranian wootz steel blade, scabbard set with gold, diamonds, emeralds and pearls, jade handle, a ceremonial sword, used for an investiture ceremony, a perfect symbol of the luxury, extravagance and workmanship in the Ottoman Empire, said to have been made in 1876 for the investiture of the Ottoman sultan Murad V (reigned May 30–August 31, 1876). He suffered a nervous breakdown before the ceremony and was deposed and imprisioned until his death in 1904.
