The Sword and Shield of Carl Gustaf Wrangel

The sword and shield were taken as spoils of war by Carl Gustaf Wrangel from Voivode Jan Zamoiskij following the Battle of Warsaw in 1656. The set was, according to some sources, initially a gift from the Ottoman Sultan Murad III to Stephen Báthory – King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania, Prince of Transylvania.
