The Sword of Avowal is a key item in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Ceremonial sword of Londor.
Cannot be equipped as a weapon.
It is said that a rite of wedlock will presage a true Hollow lord.
Your spouse's name is Anri, who patiently awaits a rightful lord, deep within the mausoleum.


Given to the player by a Londor pilgrim outside of the Darkmoon Tomb in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, just before reaching Anor Londo.


Used to conclude Anri of Astora's questline.

Interacting with Anri's body in front of Gwyn's tomb will play a cutscene where the player plunges the sword into his/her body, concluding with this the rite of wedlock that will presage the coming of a true hollow lord.
