The Regia Armorial

Warriors in the Angevin period started to use heraldry on their shield to distinguish themselves. When portraying these very late datelines, look out for the below. These are designs approved by the authenticity team for being suitable to the period – but the names chosen do not necessarily refer to the historical name for the arms used.

Note that the designs listed below grace the warriors shield, surcoats were occasionally used by the richer knights, but seldom were they of the same colours or design as the shield.
