The History of Heraldry and Family Coat of Arms

The Adoption of Coat of Arms by Nobility

Heraldry designs began to be widely used by European aristocrats in the 12th century. The systematic and heritable heraldry had been developed in the early 13th century. According to laws or social practices, there is a certain degree of difference between different countries as to who has the right to use weapons. Early heraldry designs were personal and used by individual nobles (over time, they might also change the design they chose). By the end of the 12th century, during the Third Crusade (1189-1192), King Richard I had hereditary weapons in England.

Although there is no universal, enforceable and extensive regulation, the [citation needed] coat of arms remains consistent throughout Europe, and only tradition can govern the design and use of weapons. some countries, such as England and Scotland, still maintain the same heraldic authorities that have traditionally granted and managed weapons for centuries and continue to do so today. For example, in England, the award of weapons is and has always been controlled by the Weapons Academy.

The origin of armorial family arms refers to coats with heraldic patterns worn by combatants, especially in the old French cote a armer knight competition. This meaning was transferred to the heraldic design itself in Middle English in the middle of the 14th century.
