monogramm witn the Order of the Elephant

Hallo!
There ia a rifle made most probably in Germany about 1660-1720, which stock is inlaid with monogramm (sorry, it was damaged). Beneath this monogramm is a badge of Danish order of the Elephant, I suppose, and above - the king's (?) crown. Who can it be? I tried to compare it with monogramms of danish kings of XVII-XVIII c., but this one looks too complicate. Here are a photo and a drawing of a monogramm

Thanks for any help!

It might be Prince Ernest Augustus, son of George III. Was created Duke of Cumberland. The date seems to fit.

"In early 1803,Ernest was appointed commander of the Severn District, in charge of the forces in and around the Severn Estuary. When war with France broke out again after the Peace of Amiens, the elder Duke appointed Ernest to the more important Southwest District, comprising Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire." Source: Wiki

He later became King of Hanover

It is a monogramm of Russian Empress Catherine II (the Great, 1762-1796). "EA" means "Ecaterina Alexeevna" ("Catherine, dother of Alexey" - her name in Russian). Like here:

In case you don't get the correct answer here why not try the College of Arms in London? They know all about arms, heraldry, cyphers etc.

There appear to be two versions:

and the other:

I do agree that the College of Arms would be the safest bet in deciding.

Your crown and cypher

Natski

This is for King James II of England. I have a .pdf available to send to you but I don't know how to attach it to my forum reply.

Can anyone help me out with this technicality, or does this forum have a facility to allow Natski to send me a private email address to which I can reply with an ordinary email and the .pdf as an attachment ?

Regards
Ray

At the top of your page on the right hand side, look under where it says "Welcome 1st Regt of FG" and underneath that you see the words Private Messages. Click on that and it will take you to the area of the website where you can send private messages.

cypher identification

I'd love some help identifying this monogram I found on some antique lingerie, does anybody have any ideas? I assume this is a coronet and therefore a lesser royal? Thanks

The coronet is the rank of a Viscount. Therefore the monogram belongs to a peer or peeress and not a Royal personage.

I hope this is helpful. Sorry I don't know which Viscountcy it belongs to.
