Arms of the Archbishop and Duke of Rheims

From The Blazon of Gentrie by Sir John Ferne (1586) p213

Blazon: Azure semé de lis or a cross gules

“[T]he Archbishop was invested with that dignity, for, he was not only consecrated Archbishop, but therewithall likewise created Duke of Rheims, and so were all the other five spiritual peers possessed of a temporal dignity, which was princely annexed to their Churches.” (213)
