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.
