Mantling
Heraldry
Heraldry
portal * v * t * e In heraldry , MANTLING or lambrequin is drapery tied to the helmet above the shield. It forms a backdrop for the shield. In paper heraldry it is a depiction of the protective cloth covering (often of linen ) worn by knights from their helmets to stave off the elements, and, secondarily, to decrease the effects of sword-blows against the helmet in battle, from which it is usually shown tattered or cut to shreds; less often it is shown as an intact drape, principally in those cases where clergy use a helmet and mantling (to symbolise that, despite the perhaps contradictory presence of the helmet, they have not been involved in combat), although this is usually the artist's discretion and done for decorative rather than symbolic reasons

Charge (heraldry)
Heraldry
Heraldry
portal * v * t * e In heraldry , a CHARGE is any emblem or device occupying the field of an escutcheon (shield). This may be a geometric design (sometimes called an ordinary ) or a symbolic representation of a person, animal, plant, object or other device. In French blazon , the ordinaries are called pièces while other charges are called meubles (i.e. " mobile "). The term charge can also be used as a verb; for example, if an escutcheon depicts three lions , then it is said to be charged with three lions; similarly, a crest or even a charge itself may be "charged", such as a pair of eagle wings charged with trefoils (e.g. Coat of arms
Coat of arms
of Brandenburg ). It is important to distinguish between the ordinaries and divisions of the field , as these typically follow similar patterns, such as a shield divided "per chevron", as distinct from being charged with a chevron

Leo Belgicus

CONTENTS * 1 Terminology * 2 History * 3 References * 4 Gallery * 5 External links TERMINOLOGYThe names derived from the Belgae (and thus including Belgica ) are now mostly identified with the country Belgium ; yet before the division of the Low Countries into a southern and a northern half in the 16th century, it was a common name for the entire Low Countries , and was the usual Latin translation of the Netherlands (which at that point covered the current territory of the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium and a small part of northern France).
