OOOO BTW...the weapon might have come first of course...I suppose that if you were a King and you were in a procession, you would want someone at the head of the procession who could defend you?

Think of it like an armed escort of the medieval world.

A Weapon that maybe became a token...so if you were important enough to have an armed escort, you were given the Mace, whether you needed defence or not, and slowly it became purely ceremonial?

I dont know which way round these things developed...but there is more of a connection between the two then you may have thought when first presenting the idea of a politician waving around a mace like that
