Legendary arms of Joanna of Naples

Joanna of Naples

From The Blazon of Gentrie by Sir John Ferne (1586) p222.

Blazon:  Per pale azure semé de lis or, a label of three points gules (Naples) and barry of eight argent and gules (Hungary ancien).

Unusually, Joanna bears her paternal arms on the dexter side of the shield, which was generally reserved for their husbands’ arms. The sinister side shows the arms of her first husband, Andrew, Duke of Calabria
