Arms of Concino Concini

Concinio Concini

(1569-1617)

Blazon: Party of six; I and VI azure three mounts in base or surmounted by as many feathers argent, II and IV or a double-headed eagle displayed sable, III and V argent a chain in saltire sable

Concini was awarded the additional quarters with the eagle in 1610 as part of his ascension to Marquis de l’Ancre, though I am not sure of its origin. It does not seem to be related to the German arms.

Arms of the House of Concini

Concini

In use since 1496?

Blazon: Per quarterly I and IV azure three mounts in base or surmounted by as many feathers argent*, II and III argent a chain in saltire sable

*Intentionally unclear; some depictions have one feather on each mount, while others show the three feathers grouped on the central mount.

There is not much information available on the Concini family, but they seem to have been Tuscan in origin, possibly descended from the Counts of Catenaia.

Arms of Edward, the Black Prince

 

(1330-1376)

Blazon: Sable three feathers palewise, each impaling a scroll charged with “Ich Dien.”

It should be noted that the Black Prince officially bore the arms of England with the customary label argent; the arms pictured above were used “for peace,” i.e. jousts and tournaments, and they functioned more as a badge than as a coat of arms proper.
