Excalibur.

There are three separate tales about the legend of Excalibur and King Arthur. In the first tale that is told throughout the world is the one where the sword is placed in a stone and no one besides Arthur had the strength to remove the sword from it dwelling.

In the second tale, the Lady of the Lake gives Arthur the sword while he is fighting King Pellinore because he breaks his sword. The Lady of the Lake’s hand appears coming out of the depths of the lake along with the words "Excalibur, that is as to say as Cut-steel," and Arthur graciously accepts the sword.

Now the third tales explains that the sword that Arthur that he had drawn from the stone had broken into. Merlin knew that King Arthur was soon to fight King Pellinore and he took him to the lake where they met with the Lady of the Lake. In the middle of the lake a hand came from the water holding a beautiful sword, Merlin and King Arthur rowed out to the hand where King Arthur received Excalibur. The Lady of the Lake told King Arthur the sword was hers and she wanted him to return it to her at the end of his life.

As soon as King Arthur had the sword in his hands, the hand disappeared back into the depths of lake.

All three legends, however, end the same way with King Arthur approaching death he asks that Sir Bedivere return the sword to the lake. Bedivere believes the sword is too precious to throw into a lake so he only pretends to discard the sword into the lake. When he returns to King Arthur he asks him what he saw when he tossed the sword into the lake. He replied that the sword just vanished under the water. He did this on two occasion and King Arthur reprimands him both times and ordered him to the lake with Excalibur the third time. This time, Bedivere listened to the wishes of King Arthur and tossed Excalibur into the lake. A hand came from the depths of the lake and grabs the sword and pulled it under. King Arthur then passed away.
