HeraldryAccording to the article “Heraldry” by Oswald Barron, kings and princes were probably the first to bear arms. However, it is Richard I who appears to be the first English sovereign with a great seal of arms on his shield in around 1189. Below you will find over 160 images of Heraldry in color and black and white. Included are twenty-four printable pdf files of Coat of Arms Templates, Shield Templates, and Printable Coat of Arms.
