The best-known legend regarding Roland is probably that of his last stand at the Battle of Roncevaux, an actual historical battle that was later romanticised into a major battle between Christians and Muslims. In the epic, Durandal was said to have been given to Charlemagne by an angel of God, who instructed the emperor to give the sword to one of his counts.In contrast, the Italian epic (‘Orlando Enraged’) by Lodovico Ariosto, notes instead that Durandal was once the sword of the Trojan hero Hector, and was given to Roland by the enchanter Malagigi.Another famous sword (though perhaps less well-known in the English speaking world) is Durandal, the sword of the paladin Roland.Although little is known about the historical Roland, he is a prominent figure in medieval European tales.Munro’s comments kicked off a massive war of words with Donnelly and his supporters and the published tens of thousands of words arguing back and forth over whether the find was real.In 1905, Munro brought out the heavy artillery, publishing a 400-page book proving in painstaking detail that the shales were a modern fraud.In a number of legends, Roland is said to be the nephew of the famous Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne.
