Those of you who have a reasonably good grasp of English (that is nearly all of you) and perhaps want to broaden your heraldic horizons - or perhaps give the rest of the world a deeper insight into nordic heraldry, why not try the International Association of Amateur Heralds (IAAH).

We have members from many parts of the world, though not too many from Norden as yet. You will certainly receive a warm welcome - as well as perhaps taking a lot of the load off me in explaining the intricacies of Swedish royal heraldry!

I've read the thread on Swedish royal heraldry and I think you are doing just fine explaining the alledged intricacies.

There was one question about the stars in the arms of Bernadotte that wasn't fully answered. Please forward the follwoing answer if you like to.

During the 1st French empire titles of noblilty was indicated by different charges. For example Sovereign Princes had "on a chief azure an imperial eagle or" and dukes had "on a chief gules, semé of stars argent". As one of three Sovereign Princes Bernadotte had a chief with an imperial eagle. As a king of Sweden he continued to use the chief with the eagle. However, he replaced the eagle with golden stars (azure, semé of stars or) for his son Oscar (I) and the sons of Oscar: Karl, Gustav, Oscar (II) and August. It was probably intended to signify their status as Swedish dukes - with inspiration from the French imperial heraldry. During king Oscar I the chief with stars and the chief with an eagle was combined in the coat of arms of the king - possibly due to misunderstanding and poor knowledge of the origin of the stars. Later the stars were arranged as the Constellation of Ursa Major.

I should perhaps say that I am now the President of the International Association of Amateur Heralds. As such it is my great pleasure to invite those of you who would like to share your knowledge of heraldry outside the confines of Norden to join us.

"Us" includes such well-known names as Marcus Karlsson, Claus Berntsen and Torsten Laneryd.
