Heraldry: lions, eagles, and bonacons!

443

The coat of arms of Australia is one of the richest animals in the image. It consists of the coats of arms of the states, which also depict animals and birds, and the supporters - an ostrich and a kangaroo, did not fall on it by accident either: it is argued that these animals were chosen because they cannot move backward, but only forward - and by this they symbolize progress. Although they can, of course, but they rarely do it ... The coat of arms also depicts a golden lion in a red cross, a red lion, a black swan and a shrike bird


I found, friends, I found
Who is the stupid culprit
Our calamities, our evils.
The stamp is to blame for everything,
Bilingual, two-headed,
Our all-Russian eagle.

I will refer to the popular word,
To the great wisdom of the ages:
Two-head - emblem, base
All murderers, idiots, thieves.
Without entering into disputes with fools,
With embarrassing speeches,
How many times have you said yourself:
“You’re talking about two heads!”

(Vasily Kurochkin. "Double-headed eagle")

Coats of arms and heraldry. Early heraldry was very simple: mostly simple geometric patterns (to facilitate identification from a distance). But animals, birds, and various monsters on shields and flags appeared long before the appearance of heraldry itself. Think of the dragons on the shields of the Bayesian warriors, for example. And in ancient Greece, the Athenians had an owl as a symbol of their city and was minted on coins. The Bible does give direct instructions for action: "Each person from the children of Israel will choose his own standard with the sign of the father's house" (Numbers, 2: 2), and as a result, out of 12 tribes of the people of Israel, almost half of them chose images of animals as their symbols ... It is not without reason that it is said that “bad examples are contagious,” so the animals became emblems on the flags of the Turanian and Iranian knights, which we have already read about in an excerpt from “Shah-name”, and then on the coats of arms of European seniors. And what kind of animals are not there ...

The most popular beast ...


Lions, of course, rank first in popularity. Moreover, judging by the coat of arms of Geoffroy, Count of Anjou, knighted in 1127, it was the lion that was the first heraldic beast. Since there is only one lion, and there are many coats of arms, "positions" were invented, that is, changes in the poses and appearance of the animal's figure. And again, it was the lion that was allowed to have the largest number of different "positions" - some heralds believe that there are at least 60 of them. In addition to its position, a lion or any other creature can also differ in a number of characteristic features. For example, a walking lion (stance) can also be “with a tongue of a different color” (that is, with a tongue in tincture that is different from the usual scarlet) and “armed” with fangs and claws.

Heraldry: lions, eagles, and bonacons!

Changed the color of the tongue and claws and got a new coat of arms!


Heraldry is a science more precisely. After all, how else to preserve the individuality of each coat of arms, of which there are many thousands. Consequently, the characteristics and positions of the shield design are very important and must be strictly followed. For example, someone will choose a golden rebellious lion against a blue background, another - a golden lion leopard, someone will have a golden rebellious lion, but with the head turned back ... A slight change in the position of the head or a forked tail - albeit in in both cases, the coat of arms will contain a "lion", but in the end we will get two completely different emblems.

Lions or Leopards?


And it so happened that in 1235 the German emperor Frederick II sent three leopards as a gift to Henry III of England. Was this an allusion to the then coat of arms of England? And if so, why do we see leopards in its coat of arms? And in general, the English coat of arms confuses specialists ... The fact is that in English heraldry such a creature as a rising lion stands on its hind legs, and a lion walking slowly on a shield. But the three lions blazonized as "walking and guarding": they walk and look at the viewer. But in French heraldry, the lion is always rebellious and with its head looking forward. "Walking and guarding", and most importantly - looking at the viewer - this is ... always a leopard!


Margrave Heinrich of Meissen. In the coat of arms there is a black rebellious lion in a golden field. Manesian Code. Heidelberg University Library

Moreover, in French heraldry, a raised lion looking at you (in English - "rising and guarding") is called lion leopardе (leopard lion), and a lion walking on its hind legs is called leopard lionne (lion leopard)! A similar example can be found in Russian territorial heraldry, where the emblem of the city of Vladimir depicts none other than a lion leopard, but not a lion!


Coat of arms of Vladimir in the "Titular" in 1672

Other beasts


It is clear that the lion on the coat of arms reflected, firstly, its own ferocity and courage, and secondly, its status. The eagle - the king of birds, as well as all other birds of prey of a lower rank would be almost as popular. Interestingly, birds of prey were ranked for hunting. The emperor could hunt with an eagle. King - with Irish Gyrfalcon. The hunting bird of princes and lords was the peregrine falcon. The baron was put in a buzzard. To the knight of one shield - a saker. The squire was entitled to the lanner, the lady to the gyrfalcon. Interestingly, in England even peasants could hunt with birds: a free goshawk, a priest a sparrowhawk, and a peasant dependent on a lord ... a kestrel! In France, a peasant could only hunt with affection! But in their coat of arms (except for the peasants, of course!) There could be birds that were not assigned according to the hunting rank!

Well, in general, on the coats of arms there was only one: bears, wolves - that is, predators, but also elephants, beavers, frogs, fish and crayfish. The noble Pernstein family from Moravia had a black bison head without a neck on a silver shield, turned towards the beholder. According to family legend, the founder of the Venyava family was ... a stoker, but he was distinguished by unusual strength. He caught a wild bison, brought him to the court of the king in Brno and chopped off his head with one blow of an ax. The king was so amazed that he granted Wieniava large estates and the family coat of arms, which reflected this glorious "feat". Do you remember the coat of arms of Baron Fron de Boeuf in the novel by Walter Scott Ivanhoe: a bull's head with horns and the motto “Beware, here I am!”? This happened not only in novels ...


Hartmann von Aue (c. 1168-1210). Not an outfit, but just a "solid passport": a shield, a helmet, a pennant, a blanket - everything is in the heads of a bird of prey. Manesian Code. Heidelberg University Library

And as if there were not enough real animals - all sorts of fantastic creatures were placed on the emblems. However, fantastic for us. In the Middle Ages, people sacredly believed that one-legged people, Pesieglavtsy, and, of course, dragons, unicorns and griffins lived in distant countries. They believed that there was also such a beast as the bonacon. He looked very much like a bull, but had horns bent inward, and was kind and gentle enough by nature, but in defense, he could cover a huge area with burning excrement! Mermaids and sirens were very popular among sea fantasy creatures. The difference is that a mermaid has one tail, and a siren has two!


Bonacon. The Rochester Bestiary of the XNUMXth century British library

The griffin was usually depicted with male copulatory organs, but for some reason the image of females was not explained by medieval heraldic authors. There is also a difference in the image of the dragon. With two paws, this is not a dragon, but a snake or a basilisk. But if there are four paws, then this is definitely a dragon. For some reason, the image of a unicorn was especially popular in Poland (starting from the XNUMXth century), Italy and Russia, which can be seen both in the coat of arms itself and as shield holders.

          According to my observations, in the "law about the meanness of things" you need to add:

          1. Having dropped an old thing that was gathering dust in the attic or mezzanine into the trash can, you suddenly discover that this thing is extremely necessary for you here and now, and you have already taken it, and it came to someone else's yard.

          Therefore, it is not a fact that we will not remember the past year with nostalgia or bitterness - whoever will succeed ...
          In any case - goodbye, old year! I know that more than once or twice I will return to you in my memories as the time of losing some illusions in anticipation of others, but I resolutely free myself from you - goodbye!

And there have always been exchanges since then, with a break for Soviet power (then Gosplan and Gossnab were involved in managing resource flows). And these guys (https://www.moex.com) are also based not far away, but in Moscow itself.

      Yes, this year Vyacheslav Olegovich told us a lot, in detail and surprisingly interesting about the fact that the heraldic icon set is such a movable background, such a summary of a person's biography in conditions of general illiteracy - the drawings are clear to everyone! On the battlefield, this is one thing, but in a peaceful life ...
      Here a gentleman is driving past a medieval collective farmer, and a glance to that collective farmer at the standard or at the shield is enough to determine what kind of tribe this gentleman is and what to do in this case. Well, or two gentlemen, wrapped in armor, met - and what to do? Weapons at the ready, bow to one before the other, or just bow to each other? The system "friend or foe" is a medieval signaling firmly entrenched in our life - so far in the form of coats of arms of settlements and the state, as well as in the form of avatars on forums.

              Colleague Crowe, once, being a very young person, I laughed at the categorical statements of my grandmother: "The main thing is health! Health is everything!" And now I think how right she was! There is health, which means there are vitality, optimism, a desire to move forward. Hence, it follows that in the given conditions, with a little understanding, welfare will also be applied - not excessive, but sufficient. For excess is an unbearable load on any organism, taking away health naturally, or, which is often found, in an unnatural way.
              So let's be healthy in 2021! )))

With some incomprehensible pleasure, he kills ravens and forty. Like all Falcons, it hunts only in flight, developing an incredible dive speed! drinks

        The weasel, although the smallest, is also a rather "fierce" predator (the weasel order, the closest relative of the Ermine) takes prey How many times larger than itself. The prey of the weasel can be the Hare, Rabbit, all upland game, ducks in the nests. An excellent fighter against rats and other rodents, easily tamed. They used to keep cats instead. By the way, like Sokol, Laski can kill not for food ... but out of "sports" interest, so to speak! drinks

            A hare for Laska is of course difficult and rare prey. But here is the Rabbit ... there is a whole applied hunting sport, Weasel working in a hole for a rabbit. True, then you need to dig for a long time recourse She is not able to pull him out of the hole.

By the way, the Rabbit Dachshund is a breed specially developed for the British and British, like the Yorkshire Terrier (for rats and rabbits).

    The nature of the weasel is well known. But trying to figure out a systemic hunt for rabbits with affection - just can't fit in my head.

    Especially in winter, the eared will die laughing.

    And sports interest in hunting mice and lizards could be in our time.

    Anyway, this little thing will start with chickens!

    So I imagine laughing Zaitsev, on people whose caresses rushed to the nearest chicken coop, instead of hunting for eared ones.

      It will be necessary - it will cope. and not only with her. Repeatedly met such stories:
      But it struck my imagination - for the rest of my life - this is the case, told by the hunter.

      Once in the forest, he came across a huge elk, killed - by a weasel!

      An insidious animal from a tree branch jumped into the ear of the mighty animal and, without haste, ate the brain of the elk. Dying, the elk broke both mighty horns on the trees, and then smashed its head, trying to shake out of it a tiny killer, only one hundred grams of weight.

      By the way, they say that hence the name - weasel. Jumps into the ear of the moose and tickles it (caresses), the moose runs, trying to free itself, and the weasel drives him to death.
      I lived on a plot in the village. I tried to bother him, but left anyway.

          Zoologists write that the Egyptians even tamed Lviv. Hunting with sails (cheetahs) was practiced. I saw a manual manual and a couple of lynxes, but they clearly divide theirs and foes. There is probably more training than domestication. Although the manul in the presence of the owner fawned like a cat. If I didn’t know that he tore up the thieves before. Kysa is like a kysa. Although it can be checked for taste.

          Welcome hi
          You can't tame a ferret, I answer! But choris "work together" easily. They demand respect for themselves, but they also do not become impudent. The territory is respected and vigilant, helping. They beat the rats and "make friends" with the "big" strangers are not allowed ...
          He is very secretive, but if he trusts, he comes to play with him sometimes. Jealous and proud beasts. Familiarity does not accept - wild ...
          One of these came to see me in the shop, when I had to work for days. He came, showed himself, looked into the eyes and left. You look, and here is a dead Pasyuk at the door ...
          A wonderful, intelligent animal, a good companion and, situationally, an assistant. But never a "hand toy", not a koteiko, although cats are full of dignity.
          You can't stroke that easily. He will be offended and leave, he will not even sweep the territory.

    And as if there were not enough real animals - all sorts of fantastic creatures were placed on the emblems. However, fantastic for us. In the Middle Ages, people sacredly believed that one-legged people, Pesieglavtsy, and, of course, dragons, unicorns and griffins lived in distant countries. They believed that there was also such a beast as the bonacon.

    ,,, I wonder if this is pure invention, when a person clearly comes up with something that he has never seen or heard, and understands that his invention is pure fantasy or
    this is when a person observes an event, and then it becomes his memory. But the memory is too fuzzy, and can change over time and turn into pure fantasy. what

    And in ancient Greece, the Athenians had an owl as a symbol of their city and was minted on coins.

    And yet, in Hellas, the drawing on the shield is mostly. In a means of identification. Although there were some exceptions. For example, the image on the shield of the "Rooster", and in the very context that we understand today. Sometimes it was a gift from another husband. However, there were some chips. For example, who can describe the wolf-legged symbol? Yeah, I also fell into a sediment when I saw "three human legs from one butt." By the way, it is also a common symbol of the Athenian hoplites.
    Ultimately, at one stage in the Penelope War, Athenian citizens got confused to the point that they painted their shields white. Later they used "Alpha" the letter "A" or "five-pointed star"! Their counterparts, the Spartans, were more modest and more traditional in this regard, using mainly, with rare exceptions, "Lamba" - the letter "L"!

    Lions or Leopards?
    You have confused the reader, Vyacheslav Olegovich. And it is not surprising, since for a very long time this issue was interpreted by French and English heraldry with certain differences, moreover, at different times these differences "differed", and translations of terminology and translations from translations made the issue even more complicated and it is not easy to understand it.
    In short - the difference between a lion and a leopard in heraldry is not zoological, but symbolic, the image of a leopard as a separate heraldic animal does not exist.
    The classic heraldic lion should stand on its hind legs and be turned in profile. If a lion steps on three legs, and its head is turned towards the viewer, it should be called a leopard (if the head of such a leopard is turned in profile, it becomes a leopard lion). A lion whose muzzle is facing the viewer is called a lion leopard.

    From left to right: lion, leopard lion, leopard, lion leopard.

          Later, for now, here:
          Evan! Evoe! That the choirs were silent? ...
          M. Lokhvitskaya

          Evan! Evoe! That the choirs were silent
          And this ... how is it ... the voice of fun?
          Leave the fights, leave the quarrels -
          You have feelings, you have love!

          Evan, Evoe, fill the bowls
          Chios wine and let's say "cheese"!
          Evan, Evoe, at your wedding
          The title best man is Dionysus himself!

          Evoe, love Evan dearly
          With all the might of their bodies
          So to drag Evan off the couch -
          Almost like pulling a god from heaven.

          Evan, Evoe love without fear
          Without causing much pain.
          Evan, Evoe - she's not sugar.
          Well, yes, not sugar. But not salt either!

          What chorus, Evan, Evoe?
          Evoe is lovely, Evan is smart.
          There are only two of you in the whole world
          (No, I'm crazy about their names).

          I give you, Greeks, sensible advice:
          Drive urgently to me in Asbestos
          And live like the Ivanovs,
          Until happiness gets bored.

          I will never vouch for the reliability, however, there is laughing

                      This is to the question of the "breed" derived, and the question is not to the wife, but to her parents. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about. I was lucky, we have been living with Masha for more than thirty years, but I have children from another woman. Life is in charge and you can't argue with it. Is it really necessary?

    All good health. I used to be romantic, and now I am a cynical hag.
    If they want me or you to be happy and wealthy, and I say: what the nafig wealth if a person is seriously ill?
    They will wish me love, and I will say: love is certainly good, but I am dying, what is in love to me?
    Therefore, it remains to wish you HEALTH. Then for sure: we will be rich, if not for money, then for health. And we will be happy that we are not sick.
    Let's be healthy and loved.

    Good evening, colleagues!
    There was no opportunity to participate in today's party, but it only means that mentally I have been with you all this time! laughing
    Happy New Year to all of you - everyone, everyone, everyone! fellow
    First of all, I would like to congratulate and thank our authors, thanks to whom we have the opportunity to gather here and discuss something. I would especially like to highlight our beloved Vyacheslav Olegovich Shpakovsky and Valery Ryzhov, who throughout the year did not leave us with their attention, providing high-quality and interesting materials for discussion. Thank you! You can agree with you, you can argue, criticize or praise - and that's great.
    Thanks also to the commentators for the thoughtful, interesting, humorous and just kind comments. We do not let this resource become an exclusively platform for brutal political showdowns, leaving a place on it for those who want to relax in good company after a hard day or just want to know a little more about the past of humanity than they know now.
    I would like to note and thank each of you for communicating personally, but today I will limit myself only to general words, because each of you has your own characteristics, your own opinion and outlook on life in general and on history in particular, which means that you can talk about you before infinity, and there is very little time left before the festive feast. smile
    I would also like to congratulate and thank our lovely ladies - without them here, as elsewhere, life has become a little more bland and monotonous.
    Happy New Year, colleagues! Hurrah!

    Comrades, admins, all with the coming 2021.
    Usually astrologers make different forecasts for the next year. I also wanted to try myself in astrology.
    The coming year will be the year of the bull. What can we expect from him?
    The bull is not a racehorse, but a slow workaholic. So we DO NOT HAVE to paint on a quick improvement. There will be difficulties, we knew difficulties before, so we will overcome them. COVID is of course the same disgust, but we can cope with it too. Must cope

    Dear colleagues, 2020 has passed. In recent years, life has not really spoiled us with joys, thanks to the "native power", but the past year stands out. COVID alone is worth it.
    But let's be fair: not everything was disgusting, there were also bright moments: 1) the general quarantine was canceled, but it seemed that it would be eternal. And on the internet there have been many prophecies, each darker than the other. As the hairdressers resumed their work, I rather did my styling, before that I rarely went to the hairdresser to feel the taste of life.
    2) I had difficult moments: I was left alone, women will understand what it is like to stay, only the "girlfriend" held me. There were also bright moments: my "baby" came and I made friends with his wife. She clings to me like a chicken, anyone will appreciate it.
    3) returned to the site. Vyacheslav Olegovich was ill and full of creative plans. Otherwise I was going to "emigrate" out of boredom and stupidity
    Colleagues, let's be optimists. If alive it means: "crown" Navalny broke off!

      Painfully?
      Sorry dear.

      and you too,
