Aroundight (also known as Arondight)

In Arthurian folklore, Aroundight originally belonged to Sir Lancelot. It was later passed down to Sir Guy in the English work, Beves of Hampton.

In the 14th century Italian romance, L'Aspramonte, Lancelot's sword is Gastiga-Folli, Sir Guy's sword is Chiarenza, and Ulivieri (Oliver) uses Chiarenza as a replacement for a sword broken in his duel with Orlando (Roland). Ulivieri's uncle renames it Altachiara before handing it to him. If we put all of this together, the Italian swords Gastiga-Folli (wielded by Lancelot),Chiarenza (wielded by Sir Guy), and Altachiara are all in fact the same sword, Aroundight.

In the French version, Oliver is said to use the sword Haute Claire ("Very Bright"), not Altachiara.
