The House of Stuart (1603 - 1714)

 

 

 The union of England and Scotland under King James was symbolised heraldically by combining the

arms of his two realms. The was some contention as to how they should be marshalled as he had

succeeded to the English arms through the female line. The solution reached was to have different arms

for both countries, since in England it was considered that the larger and wealthier country should have

precedence. The arms of Ireland, regularly incorporated for the first time, were relegated to the third quarter.
