Legendary Sword of Tipu Sultan Sold for a Staggering $17.4 Million in London

The legendary sword of Tipu Sultan has fetched a staggering $17.4 million at the Bonhams Islamic and Indian Art sale in London, captivating bidders with its exquisite craftsmanship. Dubbed ‘The Sword of the Ruler,’ the weapon was intricately crafted by Mughal swordsmiths, drawing inspiration from German blades that had reached India in the 16th century.

The sword’s hilt is adorned with beautifully designed gold lettering, representing five characteristics of God and featuring two invocations to God by name. Its remarkable craftsmanship, combined with its connection to the prominent historical figure of Tipu Sultan, made it a highly sought-after item among collectors and enthusiasts.

Oliver White, the Head of Islamic and Indian Art at Bonhams and the auctioneer highlighted the sword’s exceptional significance, noting that it is the most remarkable weapon associated with Tipu Sultan that remains in private hands.

According to the auction’s official website, the sword was among several weapons taken from Tipu Sultan’s palace after the loss of his royal stronghold at Seringapatam on May 4, 1799. Remarkably, the Bedchamber Sword was discovered in his private chambers after the war.

Tipu Sultan, known as the “Tiger of Mysore,” was a courageous and influential ruler who governed the Kingdom of Mysore in South India from 1782 to 1799. He earned his reputation through his commanding role in numerous wars and his indomitable spirit, fiercely resisting British colonial expansion in United India.

The sale of Tipu Sultan’s legendary sword not only represents a significant transaction in the world of art and collectibles but also preserves a tangible piece of history associated with an iconic figure in India’s past.
