Quest for the Mighty Sword is a 1990 Italian film directed by Joe D'Amato. It is the final film in the Ator film series.[2]


Once upon a time, a god gave a mighty sword to the king of Aquiles to bring justice to his people. Now he wants it back - but the king gives his life rather than give up the sword. Goddess Dehamira, who spoke for him, is stripped of all her privileges and held in a circle of fire until a human arrives who's strong enough to free her. When prince Ator becomes 18, he gets the sword from the mean sorcerer gnome Grindl to free Dehamira and his people. On his journey, he has to fight against dragons and other fantastic figures.



Quest for the Mighty Sword was released in the United States on August 29, 1990.[1] Quest for the Mighty Sword was also released as Ator III: The Hobgoblin, The Hobgoblin, Troll 3 and The Lord of Akili.[3]
