Aerondight is a unique Silver sword introduced in The Witcher. Geralt receives the sword from Lady of the Lake. It symbolizes Geralt's role as The Sword of Destiny. The blade was once owned by a "great warrior" but was left in the depths of Lake Vizima near Black Tern Island where Dagon resided.

In The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, it is possible to import a saved game and have Aerondight remain. However, due to the limitation of only being able to carry one Silver sword at a time, it was very likely that the Moonblade or one of the other Rune swords was imported instead. The sword is normally considered to be lost for the duration of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.

In the "Blood and Wine" expansion, the Lady of the Lake once more makes an appearance and gives Geralt Aerondight a second time, urging him not to lose it again, perhaps as a nod to the importing problem mentioned above.

Aerondight is a silver sword used in fighting monsters, and is relatively ineffective against humans. It can be received only in Chapter IV.

In The Paths of Destiny, according to a quest phase titled "The Sword", the blade is exceptional: "light, sharp as a razor, and fits the hand neatly". In the same entry, it is said that the blade "has a destiny of its own. Time will tell what that destiny is". Possibly referencing a sword with a similar name that was given to Lancelot by the Lady of the Lake in Arthurian legends.

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.

Geralt being knighted by the Lady of the Lake

Lady of the Lake knights Geralt after he fulfils her wishes, and gives him this blade along with the words: "Take this sword as a sign of my favor. Once the blade of a great warrior, it lay in the depths for ages, awaiting your arrival."
