British academics sue to recover £7m sword stolen from ancestor 400 years ago

A British author and historian has won a long-running lawsuit over a sword stolen by his ancestors 400 years ago. It is reported that according to the current price of similar antiques on the market, this sword is estimated to be as high as 7 million pounds, making it the most expensive antique weapon in the world.

Rene Greville, 73, is a writer and historian and a descendant of Fulke Greville, a prominent 17th-century English courtier, according to reports. Fulk Greyweiler was also a member of the mysterious Freemason at the time, and Rainer Greyweiler published a book arguing that the ancestor was the real author of some of Shakespeare's plays.

Renner said the most expensive sword on the antiques market fetched £7.7 million and he believed ancestral swords would fetch a similar price as there are no similar swords in the world.

It is reported that in his personal monograph "Master Shakespeare", Reina listed 177 similarities between Fulk and Shakespeare's life and creation. Rainer said there were only 600 adult males in Stratford-upon-Avon at the time, so the chances of an exact match to this degree were "very slim".
