I am looking for a series of books that involved swords and weapons that were "attuned" to a certain person and could only be used by them. If picked up by someone else, they would die. It is a sci-fi fantasy series but i cannot for the life of me remember it. Seems like it also involved royalty or some such.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This trope is not uncommon in sff and I read a few such across the years, the most recent that comes to mind being John Ringo's Council Wars which has elements of both sf and fantasy
