The marshaling of the paternal and maternal lines.

The marshaling of the paternal and maternal lines.

These marshaled arms are formed by placing the father’s arms and the mothers arms in quarters.  This method is used largely in modern armory as a decorative feature, but at one time the method was used for the arms of a child who was to inherit lands and arms from both his father and mother, during the lifetimes of both those parents.

You can get your own display showing the arms of your maternal and paternal lines by visiting the Herladry Shoppe.
