Monograms and coats of the Spanish Royal Family

I don't know if topic already exists on this topic. If you have permission to delete this topic, but I don't think there is.

I found it interesting to create a topic on this subject.

On English Wikipedia, put new monograms of King Philip VI and Queen Letizia, but I don't know if they are real, then I wish someone can enlighten me on this subject.

Here I leave the links of these new monograms that are on Wikipedia.

Monogram King Felipe VI:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felipe...I_of_Spain.svg

Monogram Queen Letizia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_...a_of_Spain.svg

Here I leave also the monograms of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia:

They don't have official monograms, or you can say their monogram is the coat of arms printed without any colour except the contour (this can be seen on the Christmas Cards), in Spain only two coat of arms have official status: the King and The Princess of Asturias (new but with a minor changes I suppose, we will know it today because King Felipe awarded Leonor the Order of the Golden Fleece yesterday and has to be published yet on the BOE).

There are also a royal standard and a guidon with the coat of arms, the backgrounds are different, the King is crimson and The Princess of Asturias is blue.

Exactly the same font is used for the regimental standards in the Netherlands, so it looks like a traditional font:

Why does Qeen Sofia have the Collar of the order of Carlos III in her coat of arms whereas Queen Letizia has the Grand Cross only ?

Both queens were given the Grand Cross on the event of their marriages , in 1962 and 2004 respectively. However, Queen Sofia was promoted to the Collar in 1983 as a 45th birthday present. https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anexo:..._de_Carlos_III

Queen Letizia will also surely get the Collar in due course, perhaps in the event of her 50th birthday-

Note that as Lipe stated, these are not their real coats of arms, since the only members of the current royal family who have been appointed a coat of arms are the King and the Princess of Asturias, as is documented in the Boletin del Estado.

According to a Spanish forum poster, the Queens and Infantas simply use the king's royal coat of arms when the occasion demands.

Does anybody else find it odd that Queen Letizia has never been awarded an official coat of arms? In fact, if I am not mistaken, among the members of the Spanish Royal Family, only the King, the Princess of Asturias and King Juan Carlos have official arms in Spain (I am not sure about Queen Sofia). Why is that?

If you download the most recent volume of the roll of arms of the Order of the Elephant from the website of the Danish Royal House, there is a coat of arms illustrated for Queen Sofía on page 245.

https://www.kongehuset.dk/vaabenboeger

Note that it is distinctly different from the fanmade "coat of arms" on Wikipedia.


However, you are correct that following the restoration of the monarchy only the King and the Prince(ss) of Asturias bear a coat of arms. I do not know the answer why, but I would guess that it is part of the wholesale slimming of the monarchy under Kings Juan Carlos and Felipe.

There might be a Spanish state visit to Sweden next month (according to TRF) where Queen Letizia might receive the Order of the Seraphim as per Swedish custom. Which banner of arms will they hang then at the order's chapel to honor her induction? Her husband's? I think that is quite embarassing although I suppose there must be several presidents of republics who also received the Order of the Seraphim and don't bear personal arms either.


At least, both King Juan Carlos and King Felipe VI have their own banner of arms (with slightly different designs) hanging at St. George's chapel as Knights of the Garter.

Maybe one of our Swedish members might be able to answer this?

Queen Sofia was awarded the order in October 1979 so queen Letizia's banner would follow the same presidence as her mother in law.
Perhaps the used Queen Sofia's private personal arms?

Artistic version from Wiki of what Queen Sofia's banner possibly looks like
