Welcome to European Heraldry. This site is designed to give a flavour of the traditions of heraldic art in Europe throughout the early years of the 17th century to the present day. Most of the illustrations created stop at the French Revolution purely for reasons of practicality. The greatest emphasis is on royal and hence national coats of arms, although in certain countries a more extensive collection is shown.
The arms are not blazoned, except in certain circumstances, but the research has been thorough and accuracy, it is hoped, has been maintained. Regular updates to this site will be added in the future.

An additional welcome to the new design for European Heraldry. I hope it will become easier to navigate with the new search facility and clearer graphics. The way the pages are laid out has changed somewhat but I hope this makes the browsing experience quicker and better.

I have also added new pages:

UK families:

Cecil, Sutton, Dudley and Ward, Hamilton, Clifford, Russell, Stuart of Darnley, Stuart of Bute

I have updated with some new information amd arms the following:

Parma, Tuscany, Bavaria, Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel,Brunswick-Luneburg, Early Brunswick, Hesse

I have started on a major project on the Peerages of England, Scotland and Ireland and Great Britain. I am replacing the arms with a fuller representation with supporters and mottoes when known. The peers have links to their relevent families if you desire.
