Question: What is the source for this coa? I am looking at the arms recorded and his coins and all of them show the same arms but without escutcheon...example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4, example 5 which makes sense, why would he have arms of Liechtenstein twice in his arms? BTW I've re-uploaded the arms variant you uploaded under Liechtenstein 1615....the arms in question is the arms of Karl I recorded in 1614 after his marriage (1613) to Anna Maria von Boskovitz.

New Arms requests

Illeshazy or rather Illésházy - Barons and counts. Their arms shows a blue shield with a black eagle being pierced by an arrow, the stance of the eagle (or hawk?) is somewhat different on some variants regarding the fact is it being pierced or also holding an arrow in its beak. First variant examples: example 1, example 2, example 3., example 4. However I believe this variant is actually just a simple variant of how the arms is really supposed to look which is shown in far more prevalent variant which shows the eagle having a bit of a different stance: example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4, example 5, example 6, example 7, example 8, example 9, etc, etc.

Cavalcabo - Lords of Cremona, Marquises of Viadana. Branch of the famed Obertenghi family, later known as Welf or Welf-Este. The arms is a knight riding a bull. example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4, etc.

Tudor Fynchan - Also called Theodor or Theodore. Senior line descended from eldest son of Ednyfed Fychan from his 1st marriage. Their arms was a modification of Ednyfed Fynchan arms and is blazoned as "gules, a chevron between three men's heads in profile argent". The arms is basically that of Ednyfed but the heads are in profile (similar to Degenberg and Heidenberg) as opposed to affrontee and completely white, the chevron is also plain without the ermine spots. In general arms is similar to this arms but with normal heads instead of moor heads.

Griffith Penrhyn - same line as above but from younger descendant in later generations. Arms is blazoned as: "gules, a chevron ermine, three old men's heads couped at the neck in profile proper". Difference between the previous arms and these are that the chevron is ermine and that the heads are proper, but described as "old heads" means the hair and beard is white. example

Williams Vaynol - Lords and Baronets of Vaynol. The blazon is: "gules, a chevron ermine between three Saracens heads couped proper". Again same arms as previous but the heads are now colored "proper"...i.e. proper skin color, proper hair (brown) color example here...note that the file is named after Penrhyn but it is wrong, this is the arms of Vaynol branch.

Williams Penrhyn - Line from younger scions of Williams line as previous. They were Lords of Cochwillan and later Baronets of Penrhyn. Arms is: "Gules, a chevron ermine between three Saracen heads affrontee couped at shoulders proper". The arms is very similar to Ednyfed original arms however the heads have an extension, all in all the way it should be shown is similar to Vaughan arms where you can see the shoulders.


So what exactly is wrong with the files I am uploading now? I am editing in illustrator, following your guidelines and you still reupload every single file I post even for a simple recolor...you even reuploaded the files I literally reuploaded that you made and uploaded under erroneous names...

Your files are still "corrupt", meaning strokes are expanded to elements. So until you manage to save files correctly I have to fix those as I can't use "corrupted" files.

Hey Joakim, I just wanted to point that the victorian canton in the Lancaster arms is ahistorical. That kind of smaller canton was never a thing, except in the mind of a few british authors of that era, as they wanted to mint a new distinction between a quarter and a canton, which of course never existed before. Also, the canton on that seal (and the other testimonies afaik) is clearly regular sized so it's not a matter of an odd artistic representation by the artisan, not that it would hold any sort of meaning of its own in the context of medieval heraldry anyway.--Solo (talk) 23:45, 24 February 2022 (CET)

So I am editing (using YOUR DIRECTIONS) in Illustrator and you tell me the files are still "corrupted"? So how about you actually post proper instructions with visual examples of how to save a file that would suit you and not me (and others) trying to "manage"?

This might help. These are the slightly different settings I've long been using and never had any compatibility problem. I found those to be more consistent & tolerant when uploading files on the website (had problems with Style Attributes since AI 2020 I think or even earlier).
