Admiral Lord Nelson's fighting sword has emerged for sale for £50,000.<br />
<br />
The British naval hero is believed to have used the historic weapon in battle against the French during the Napoleonic Wars.<br />
<br />
He gave the blade to his relative William Maurice Suckling before his death at Trafalgar in 1805.<br />
<br />
Horatio, third Earl Nelson, wrote an account of the sword's history which included the remarkable claim it once belonged to Bonnie Prince Charlie.
