Etymology

The Durandal is obviously a reference to The Song of Roland, an old French literary piece, where the holy sword, Durendal, is said to contain within its hilt one tooth of Saint Peter, blood of Saint Basil, a hair of Saint Denis, and a piece of the raiment of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is said to be able to cut solid boulders in half with a single strike.
