Heraldry of Antioch
« on: December 04, 2020, 08:35:17 PM »
I am collecting a couple of armies for Lion Rampant based around the Hattin period. The Ayyubids are relatively simple to research but I cannot find anything with my Google-fu specific for the heraldry of Raynald de Chatillon or other knights of Antioch. Any suggestions?

The arms of the house of Chatillon are discussed on French wikipedia but they don't seem to know what distinctions Renaud might have carried. A picture here gives him the undifferenced Chatillon arms, which might be just a guess.

Arms of successive Princes of Antioch, though not of their vassals, here.
