The Blade of Rosenkreuz is a real weapon
Just like Grollscwhert or Weissilber, it is a sword that, going by its theme, store and harness the power of his close friends. When he sacrificed himself for the Empire, they're buried separately - it may explain how there are 2 walking reincarnations of him, with separate abilities.
