The Generous and Lordly Nature of the Lion, will not bear a Rival in the Field; and therefore two Lions cannot be born in one Coat-Armour, but they must be suppos’d to be Lion’s Whelps, call’d therefore Lioncels.

-From The Grammar of Heraldry by Samuel Kent, p51

(An exception is made for any arms belonging to royalty, most notably that of England.)
