I have some opinions on the Boca de caballo/shells hilts. The first curious thing is that you do not find them in Spanish swords prior to 1650s.

Probably the sword is earlier than what I first...

Stephanus D.G. Rex Pol. D. Prus, says Poland or Transylvania.
Frangia reports to Hungary.
The hilt resembles to me the Austro-hungarian navy officer sword of 1857.

Captured sword later rehilted?

I think the portrait is a generic Holy Roman (Germanic), Emperor. He has a mustache!

Possibly Leopold I (d1705) although just kept as a decorative motif. He was the last one sporting a mustache.

Spain used a lot of 1796 after 1808, either passed by the British or purchased by many patriotic corporations.

I do not see why it should be spurious. The script is a bit Runkel-like.
