The shortsword is one of the smaller types of sword, alongside the falchion. It is significantly shorter than the longsword.

Appearances in the Novels


The shortsword is one of the primary weapons of the Unsullied. Presumably the shortswords used by the Unsullied resemble a Roman Gladius in appearance, thus being primarily used for stabbing.

An officer of the Gold Cloaks wields a shortsword when he threatens Yoren.[1] The Tickler also favours a shortsword, which he uses to confront the Hound.[2]
