Sword of Blessed Nuno Alvares Pereira - Excalibur Fernando Pessoa - NUNALVARES :
"What halo encircles you?
It is the sword that, swirling,
Makes the lofty air lose
Its dark, soft blue.

But what sword is it that, raised aloft,
Makes that halo in the sky?
It is Excalibur, the anointed blade,
Which King Arthur bestowed upon you.

Hope accomplished,
St. Portugal in essence,
Raise your sword like a torch
To light the path for us." 
The sword of Nun'Alvares Pereira second Constable of Portugal (1360-1431), holy  warrior upon the side door of the enclosure of the chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios.
