Description
This French Polearm known as a Fauchard-Glaive dates to the 16th century French wars of religion (1562-1598) between the Catholic French and Protestant Huguenots. This weapon is of the type used by the Catholic militia, an organised armed group which were called to arms by the King of France in an emergency such as the Saint Bartholomews day massacre (1572) in which thousands of Protestant men women and children were assassinated in a wave of Catholic mob violence to prevent a Protestant uprising. The Fauchard-Glaive was devastating against the Protestant citizens wearing little or no body armour. It was primarily a slashing weapon on a staff with a curved end used to dismount horsemen. A rare survivor of a brutal horrific period in French history.
