Clarent: Radiant and Brilliant Royal Sword (燦然と輝く王剣
, Sanzen to Kagayaku Ō-ken
?) is Mordred's sword, originally stored away by King Arthur in the armory of Camelot.[2] Described as "more dazzling than any silver", it is an ornate, sparkling white silver sword adorned with splendid decorations, acting as a symbol of kingship denoting the right of succession of the throne.[1] It is a treasured sword that has worth equal to, if not, exceeding Caliburn, that amplifies the authority of the king, the "king’s royal aura."[1][2] It thus raises the owner's physical parameters by one rank and grants and raises the rank of the Skill Charisma.[2]

It is normally a B-rank sword bestowed during the succession of kingship, but Mordred stole it without acknowledgement.[1][2] She obtained it by breaking into the vaults of Camelot upon temporarily claiming the throne during her rebellion after inciting the incidents that drove her father to lead an expedition after the traitorous Lancelot.[3][2] Due to this action, she was never acknowledged as a king, so the rank of the sword is lowered by one rank to C and does not grant her any of the normal bonuses while she wields it.[2] She still came to favor utilizing it due to it being a "sword that symbolizes royalty" and can still utilize its ability of "amplification". As an application of Mana Burst, she is able to drive her excessive hatred into the sword and amplify it to utilize Clarent Blood Arthur.[2] In Fate/Prototype: Fragments of Blue and Silver, it is revealed that the sword Florent, wielded by Lucius Tiberius, is a brother sword to Clarent. It is also said to indicate the King's rule over Gallia in contrast to Florent indicating the Emperor's rule over all the people of the continent.[4]
