Sword Of The Wise
This is the first Royal Arms you'll get in Final Fantasy XV. It is inside Tomb of the Wise just north of Leide.

Greatsword Of The Tall
You would have normally found it in the Tomb of the Tall during the "Of Gods and Kings" quest, if only you were there first.

The shield, however, decreases Strength by 100.
