This Riding Sword Model 1844 is included in the group of Arms of Spain where the Shield flanked by the initials G.C. reproduces the emblem of a Corps, with a garrison of three hawks made specifically for Civil Guard Officers.
The Civil Guard Corps was recently created under the direction of the Duke of Ahumada, and the first regulation on the use of and adjudication of bladed weapons where it was arranged that for the Infantry forces a 'Sabre of those used by the Army Infantry' would be adopted, while for the Cavalry, a 'Line Sword' would be assigned. RO15/June/1844
The Duke of Ahumada, worried about the correct and honorable use of weapons, dictated:
'Several times some Guardsmen have unsheathed their sabers against unarmed civilians... the entire Civil Guard You must keep in mind the motto of the old Spanish swords - do not take me out without reason or sheath me without honor - and rarely can there be cause to unsheathe it against the unarmed civilian'. (Circular 08/04/1846)
By founding order it was planned to equip all the Civil Guards of Cavalry or Infantry with their corresponding saber (RO25/08/1848) and the Duke of Ahumada, in 1850, I dictate that the orders be made directly by the heads of the Tercios to the Toledo Factory and that it be observed if they carried the true motto of the establishment since "in many workshops in the foreign kingdom they are falsified by putting the label of the Toledo Factory" From then on, swords and sabers were designed and manufactured to be carried by the civil guards.
Consequently with the above, the 'Model 1844 Riding Sword for Civil Guard Officers' was one of the first white arms of the Civil Guard Corps manufactured in the prestigious White Weapons Factory of Toledo.
The officers of the Cavalry units of the Civil Guard were endowed, continuing the custom of the time, of an exclusive sword model of mount. The use of a riding sword was complemented by that of a girding sword in acts on foot.
