[show]SPOILER: Although not shown in the show, where Ser Arthur Dayne uses two swords, the true sword that Ser Arthur wielded was a sword named Dawn forged from a fallen meteoroid, just as strong as Valyrian steel. Unlike the other Valyrian swords of Westeros, like Longclaw (Mormont) and Ice (Stark), Dawn wasn't passed from lord to lord of House Dayne. It was bestowed upon a knight deemed worthy of using it. The wielder of Dawn was given the title Sword of the Morning.
