Thankyou for all the arms you posted.
Can I ask where you found Infanta Elena's arms?
Looks like quarterings are:-
Top Left - Marichalar Top Right - Borbon-Anjou
Centre Shield - City of Lugo
Bottom Left - Saenz de Tejada Bottom Right - Schleswig
That is the lefthand quarters representing Jaime de Marichalar's parentage, the righthand for the Infanta's, with Schleswig for Sofia de Grecia ie House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg
This reminds me that I have seen somewhere (& I can't now remember where) the following for Queen Sofia of Spain's Arms:-
Two oval shields accollée: left-Spain, right-Schleswig; and above the shields the Royal Crown
Queen Louise (née Battenberg/Mountbatten), wife of Gustav VI Adolf Centre
Crown Princess Sibylla, Duchess of Västerbotten, mother of King Carl XVI Gustav Right
Princess Ingeborg (née Princess of Denmark), wife of Prince Carl, Duke of Västergötland, and mother of Queen Astrid of Belgium and Crown Princess Märtha of Norway
Do you have more coat of arms? did you make them yourself?
I thought the Grand Duke Jean of Luxemburg dropped all the Bourbon Parma titles in the 80-ties and thus also from his coat-of-arms.
These are the personal arms of the Grand-Dukes
The Bourbon-Parme arms is still used in the personal arms because the descend from the Bourbon-Parme family in the male-line.
According to Wikepedia there was a Grand Ducal Decree, 28 July 1986, Jean renounced the titles of the House of Bourbon-Parma for himself and his family in 1986 when his eldest son, then-Hereditary Grand Duke Henri married Maria-Theresa Mestre. The reason for this being that the Duke of Parma, Carlos Hugo, ruled the marriage unequal in 1981.
But they still use the armes because they renounced the titles but they are still family.
THe coronet shown is only an image. There is one Prince's coronet, and that is the Crown of the Prince of Wales. (Although there are three versions, only one is ever worn at any given time). There is only one "Prince" as Great Britain only has one Principality-Wales. Thus all other "Princes" wear the coronet in accordance with the senior of their other titles. Eg: HRH The Earl of Wessex, wears an Earls' coronet. HRH The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh wears a Dukes' coronet, as does HRH The Duke of York.
The Princes of the United Kingdom do not wear the coronet of an earl or of a duke. They wear a royal coronet depending on their relationship to the Monarch. It is to be regretted that information is posted here 'authoritatively' when it is totally incorrect.
