Swords forged at Darksword Armory have a variety of sources of inspiration. While the majority of our swords are based on historical models (and whenever possible, models that we have personally examined), others come from books, from myth, and from television or film. These fantasy swords are sometimes more directly based on a popular design (such as our Excalibur sword, inspired by the 1981 film); at other times, our designers are inspired to come up with an original design based on a fantasy weapon or character.

This is how the Mother of Dragons was born.

In George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire (immortalized on television in the HBO series Game of Thrones), the character of Daenerys is at the center of the story. Descended from the Targaryens, a family who long ago controlled dragons in order to unite the Seven Kingdoms, Daenerys begins her journey in the books as an exiled princess being given in marriage to a barbarian warlord. Dragons have long been gone from the world, but Daenerys comes into possession of three dragon eggs – and unexpectedly is able to hatch them. With the power of her draconic “children,” she becomes a major player in a series of epic wars and changes the course of history. Arguably, she is the single most important character in the series.

The Darksword Armory Mother of Dragons sword is inspired by this character. While in the series Queen Daenerys rarely wields a weapon herself, this sword is designed after what she might have wielded as the mother of the only dragons in existence. The blade is short and broad at the base, and its hollow-ground length tapers to a sharp point. This blade construction combined with the larger pommel brings the point of balance right to the guard, creating a sword that is shockingly lively in the hand and suitable for an individual who may be smaller and more suited to speed over strength. The cast bronze guard depicts a curling dragon that protects the hand, and the matching pommel has a high-born, aristocratic feel. The handle of textured ebony wood completes the look of a sword worthy of a queen, even a queen who relies not on the strength of her arm but on the might of her spirit. We hope it will appeal to others who embody her fierce and powerful spirit.

 

“I will take what is mine with fire and blood.”

— Daenerys Targaryen
