    Not necessarily a sword you're going to use in the conquest, but rather one that is the most emblematic of one of the oldest human endeavors.

    Eh, I think bashing your neighbor's head in with a rock to take their stuff is an earlier innovation.

    Why sword? I think a crushing weapon would be more emblematic of the conquest itself. You crushed resistance, you didn't slice it into smaller portions.

    Bludgeons are more useful for policing the subjugated after the conquest.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of men have shorter swords.

    If you can manage it, a Zweihänder would look damned impressive.

    One hand should be free to gesture orders though.

    Any sword will do. What matters is the heart of the conquering man, his mind, his glory, his cunning and capability.

    But if I had to choose, anything but a katana, because katanas are horrendously overrated.
