"I am al'Lan Mandragoran... Lord of the Seven Towers, Defender of the Wall of First Fires, Bearer of the Sword of the Thousand Lakes!... I may be a king without a land. But I am still King!"
   —Lan Mandragoran

Bearer of the Sword of the Thousand Lakes is a title Lan Mandragoran claimed for himself just prior to ordering his army of twelve thousand to charge one hundred fifty thousand Shadowspawn at Tarwin's Gap.

Though no specific mention of a Sword of the Thousand Lakes is made in the histories, Malkier was described as "a kingdom necklaced by a thousand lakes." The same document also reports that prior to moving him out of the country, Lan was given the ancient sword of the Malkieri kings; a Power-wrought blade.[1] It is likely then that the sword given to him as a babe in arms was that same Sword of a Thousand Lakes that he cites as he claims this title.
