Queen of Swords

One season with 22 episodes in 2000/2001

Favorite episodes: 6, 21


Storyline (IMDB):

A young woman returns to her home in California after her father’s mysterious death. There, she becomes a symbol, the queen of swords, fighting for justice and trying to right the wrongs the colonel has done.




As I first saw the heroine of this series, I thought: What a stupid mask, everyone would know who she is….! But I gave it a try …and that paid off great!

Not only the that Tessie Santiago looks gorgeous, but the series also had a good storyline and some really great “mask action”! And the two main villains were really great! Great chemistry between them and the Queen of Swords… 🙂


Maskrippers opinion:

Mask action

(attempted unmasking, self unmasking, unmasking, secret identity discovered)


Great scenes…. very “sexy” scenes. Only the quantity was a bit too low for over 20 episodes…

But episodes 6 and 21 really delivered big time!

Spoiler title
I mean an episode where the villain tries to unmask her 3(!) times?




Good storyline with solid action scenes! I like how she helps the oppressed as the Queen of Swords.

The idea for the most famous episode 21 was GREAT! A villain trapped with her in a mine where she can’t escape.

And he is eager to find out who is hiding under that mask!



Well, ok, in that era she can’t have a sexy black rubber mask. I understand.

Her forehead is covered, but nearly everyone would know how she is, even with the mask on. But ok, at least it is a far better disguise than Superman and his Clark Kent identity 😉


Rest of the costume

Nice outfit, sexy cleavage. For that era, it’s very good as most sexy materials can’t be used in that historic setting!



Tessie Santiago (Queen of Swords /  Maria Teresa Alvarado): The acting is solid, looks really hot/sexy in both identities. Nice facial expressions.
