"Many theories have been put forward to account for the evolution and perfection of heraldry. Its birth coincided with changes in the nature of European society itself, which was becoming more sophisticated, with more and more estates passing from one generation to the next. Throughout Europe, the general trend to migration that had characterized the Dark Ages had come to a halt. Family roots were now firmly bedded in, with the village settlement in place and, at its centre, the first two "estates": the priest, who prayed for all, and the knight or lord who fought for all.
By the 13th century, the notion of gentility was firmly established among the lordly classes, who sought connections with similarly genteel families through marriage. The idea of a stable, ancient and exclusive bloodline was accentuated, and the development of the shield of arms created an ideal symbol to confirm the hereditary nature of that descent."
We are proud to honor these ancient Coat of Arms of the British, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Spanish, French, Germany, Italian and Portuguese peoples. Our current library contains over 15,000 Coat of Arms of family names and septs. Proudly display your heritage at family gatherings, festivals and historical attractions. They make for a wonderful eye-catching conversation piece!
