Armorial Wijnbergen

The Armorial Wijnbergen, also known as the Wijnbergen Roll, is one of the oldest medieval French roll of arms.
The armorial is divided into two parts: the first, dated c.1265–1270 has 256 coats of arms of the vassals of Louis IX in Île-de-France;
the second part, dated c.1280 has 1,056 coats of arms of the vassals of Philip III in northern France, the Netherlands and the Rhineland.
The armorial is named by the Van Wijnbergen family, in whose possession the armorial was found.

The numbering and blazon used here are from E. de Boos, completed with B. Timms (from P.-A. Even & L. Jéquier) where needed.
Individuals represented in the roll were identified on the basis of two date intervals : 1267-1268 for the first part and 1284-1288 for the second part.
