Version A | Version B

The Glover's Roll is named after the famous herald of the Elizabethan era, Robert Glover, author (in 1586) of one of the two known copies from the supposed original manuscript. The collection of individuals, exclusively centered on the Kingdom of England, is a testimony of its politics in the time of Henry III, featuring several sequences for various office holders, as well as Savoyards and Poitevins.
The following is the version A of the armorial (or Cooke's), as edited by A. Wagner, Roll of Arms of Henry III, 1967. It includes 215 items, in blazon only, and was originally compiled between 1253 and 1255, possibly for Simon de Montfort.
