Coat of Arms Forum
Okay, very interesting indeed, although that particular royal lady made free use of titles and coats of arms pretty much at her whim, having nearly been made a head of state in the forties. I have seen the purple robes on "Christopher" elsewhere before myself, no doubt an allusion to the legendary Byzantine origin of this English family. I have never credited the Irish version of their history myself.
What interests me here is the alterations Princess Sue's mother-in-law made in the Myers coat of arms. I have seen examples of Myers and Strohmeyer changing the mullet azure to a fleur-de-lys before, in allusion to their French royal descent. I have never seen the blades of the scythes gules. I suppose that changing the martlets to ravens would have been very significant to that particular lady, given her own background.
