The Arms, Standards, Monograms etc of the so-called 'Principality of Lichtenberg' have been removed as they are fanciful creations dating from 2010 and therefore have no relevance to The Royal Forums.

Thanks for these, I greatly admire the heraldry of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

A note on the posting of Coats of Arms

Images greater than 650px in height tend not to fit a standard-sized computer screen when displayed within a post.
The size of the displayed image must take into account the standard header (and if the member has a signature, a footer) which take up some of the available space within a post.

For optimum display so that individual images don't require scrolling to view, please resize images before posting so that the height of the image does not exceed 650px, with preferably a maximum height of 600px.

thanks,
Warren

I'm not sure that this is the monogram of Prince Hans-Adam. It looks more like two "L's" in mirror image of each other. Maybe it's a monogram representing "Liechtenstein."

This is the one of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. I'm guessing there was a different one before she was queen.

When would they use this cypher? I've never seen it before and as Elizabeth always outranks Philip, especially on state occasions when such a symbol would be in evidence, I can't see where it would be used.

I just noticed that it had already been posted earlier in this thread. I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. Are you questioning that such a cypher exists?
I've only seen it online and I haven't given any thought to where it would be used.

I suppose I am questioning whether its legit for that very reason that I can't think where it would be used. I'm happy to be proved wrong, but you have to be wary with what you find on wikipedia. I usually believe it if it is sensible and corroborates what I've seen/read elsewhere but I'm not sure about this one.

I linked to wiki because it had a big version of it. It was already posted earlier in the thread and I've seen it before. And I realize you have to wary of wiki because it's not my first day using the internet(plus I make plenty of edits on it myself).

The source on this image's Wikicommons page states that the dual monogram of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip is from a 1972 coin commemorating their 25th anniversary.

I just don't understand why the BRF are so unimaginative when it comes to their wedding monograms/dual cyphers, they simply put each individual monogram side by side or one over the other and that's it. No effort is made to try to create a new and original combined monogram as it is the case with most royal houses. And what is worse, it sometimes appear to have at least two different versions of said dual monograms, as if they weren't really official. I wonder why.

Probably because they aren't used that much, but also what should they use or create? The coats of arms are more impressive, if that's what you want. What are you expecting? And what is a good example of more imaginative?

A couple of days ago I was on Wiki, and saw the Coat of Arms and Crest of the House of Lannoy which of course is the family of Countess Stephanie de Lannoy, soon to be bride of HGD Guillaume of Luxembourg.

I must say it's magnificent, far more regal and impressive than that of the Grand-Ducal House. Will Stephanie still have the right to display her ancestral arms after she marries(along with her new husband's) or will she have to give up the de Lannoy Arms and Crest completely?

Or will Guillaume and Stephanie get an entirely new Coat of Arms of their own?

Sorry that I do not know how to scan images, or I could show everyone.

If Stephanie follows the tradition, she will incorporate her family Coat of Arms into that of her future husband's.
The end result would probably be something like this.


Unmarried ladies usually have their Arms depicted on a lozenge and with a blue ribbon (symbol of spinsters). Once married, the Arms are depicted on a shield.
For example, the Duchess of Cambridge's family Coat of Arms were incorporated into that of Prince William's, creating this end result.

AMAZING.

Thanks much, Warren! The 2nd photo, or de Lannoy Blazon, is the one I was referring to as particularly beautiful.

Also, great information Artemisia-the photoshopped image of the combined de Lannoy/Nassau arms is quite impressive!

A good example of imaginative can be found in the Danish Royal House, where a totally new cypher, different from Joachim's and Marie's individual monograms was created on the occasion of their wedding:

Joachim:


Marie:


Dual Cypher - Joachim and Marie:


Same with Joachim and Alexandra:

Joachim:


Alexandra:


Dual Cypher - Joachim and Alexandra:
