    Tonyo: Maximilian II, King of Bavaria. Hilt style and the grip shield are dead giveaways. Note the diamonds under the initial "M", Bavarian motif...Maximilian II reigned 1848 to 1864, followed by the famous Ludwig II.

    Hope this helps.

    This is the model for light infantry officers. Nice find!

    Tony: One more thing, any sword this fancy, if it was Mexicano, would have the "Eagle and Snake on the Cactus" Motif....or at least "RM" for Rupublica Mexicana somewhere on it...
