According to the Italian legends, San Glagano Guidotti was born in 1148 and was the man behind this sword in the stone. Like Arthur’s Round Table Guidotti was also a knight. But unlike Arthur’s men he was very cruel and evil. But he gave up his evil practices to become a saint.
Though many feel that the sword never belonged to Galgano Guidotti but the intense studies of the sword reveal that it belongs roughly to Guidotti’s time. If it at all did not belong to him then it belonged to someone of his era. The mummified hands also belong to the similar time period. It seems there is some truth about the legend of sword in stone at Monte Siepi Chapel.
