Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A Karabela is a Polish saber type, been most popular in the 1670s.
  • Some say the name is a derivation from the name of the Iraqui city of Karbala, known for trade of this kind of sabres.
  • Another background of the word may be the combination of the Turkish "Kara", the color black, and the Arabian "Bela", what means misfortune, curse or hex.
  • In Turkish Kara-bela is also used for "Black Plague", the disease.
