Arms of Jean de Foix

Viscount of Narbonne 1468-1500, count of Étampes 1478?-1500* (1450-1500)

Blazon:  per quarterly I and IV or three palets gules (Foix), II and III or two bulls passant in pale gules, armed and collared azure (Béarn)

*The transmission of Étampes from the Bretagne/Brittany family to the Foix family is somewhat unclear; it may have something to do with the marriage of François II to Jean’s sister Margaret. Somehow, the county made its way back to Anne of Brittany c.1512, whether by inheritance or grant of the king.
