East LoI - 2016-08-31

This item was on the 11-2016 LoAR

1: Adrienne d'Evreus - Resub Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Adrienne d'Evreus in December of 2014, via the East.

Azure, a fleur-de-lys argent and a bordure gules.

The submitter's previous device, Per fess wavy azure and argent, a seahorse counterchanged, was returned on the Sept. 6, 2014 East Kingdom Letter of Decision, due to conflict with the badge of the Order of the Hippocampus in the Kingdom of Atlantia (02/2000): (Fieldless) A seahorse erect argent tailed azure. This resubmission is a complete redesign.

The submitter provided documentation in support of an Individually Attested Pattern of red bordures on blue fields in French heraldry. The specific IAP pattern being documented is "A red bordure on a blue field surrounding a single complex inanimate charge".

Multiple examples of are found in the Armorial le Breton, which contains armory from the 13th through 15th centuries:

Azure, three fleurs-de-lys Or, a bordure gules (
Azure, semy-de-lys Or, a bordure gules (
Azure fretty argent, a bordure gules (
Azure, a tower Or, a bordure gules(

While the three fleurs-de-lys and the semy-de-lys devices may be considered non-independent, both being cadenced arms of France (likely the arms of the Dukes of Normandy), at least three independent examples are provided.

The same examples also demonstrate the use of plain-line uncharged bordures and fleurs-de-lys in French heraldry.

The submitter's documentation provides additional examples, but they are not necessary to support the IAP.
