Executioner's Sword (Sword of Justice)

Medieval execution by sword

Decapitation by sword (or axe, a military weapon as well) was sometimes considered the "honorable" way to die for an aristocrat, who, presumably being a warrior, could often expect to die by the sword in any event; in medieval Europe it was considered a privilege of noblemen to be beheaded. This would be distinguished from a "dishonorable" death on the gallows, quartering or through burning at the stake. It was not uncommon fact that convicts asked their judges for mercy - to be allowed to die by the sword.
