Corrected entry: The swords used by the knights are referred to as "broadswords" by characters in the movie. This term, however, was not used in the Middle Ages, a knight's weapon was simply referred to as an "arming sword". To use "broadsword" for a knight's sword is a 19th century invention, to distinguish them from smaller weapons.Twotall
