I’ve been reading a bit of Japanese history, here and there, and there are at least a few men who are famous for their skill with a sword. When I thought about European history, though, I realised that I couldn’t think of a single person whose martial prowess was legendary. The “old West’s” gun-slingers were, but they’re much later in history.
So, were there any Europeans who were renowned for their ability to use a sword? Or any other non-gun weapon, for that matter?
