"Le retour"[edit]

You came back: welcome home! --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 07:57, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Merci, mon ami sage et aimable ! Always a pleasure to be welcomed back by you! -- Slaunger (talk) 10:12, 2 April 2015 (UTC)


I don't know if you know what has happened. It is very difficult for me to express. You has nomined the picture at 20:12. My mistake was promove the first picture of QI, your picture (I thought it was another), at 20:16 without seeing. Face-tongue.svg--Lmbuga (talk) 20:55, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your pictures. Congratulations--Lmbuga (talk) 20:59, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
(ec) Hehe, Lmbuga, no I did not understand exactly what had happened, but I thought it was due to some edit conflict or so, as I had an edit conflict about the same time. Anyway, nice to also have a little bit of fun at QIC. Shade.png. If I may pad your shoulder as well: Thanks for your pictures as well! -- Slaunger (talk) 21:04, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks--Lmbuga (talk) 21:17, 8 April 2015 (UTC)


Yes, you've got it !

No matter the shape of the shield, what is around the shield, and the exact shade of blue, you are right. I'll try to categorize properly !--Jebulon (talk) 16:33, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

See the CoA here !--Jebulon (talk) 16:35, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Detailed better here--Jebulon (talk) 16:46, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Wow, classification was not so easy... but doneIt is a mix of french and english, ans "1 seven rays Or" means: one star in the shield, with seven rays, painted in gold. I know (french) heraldry pretty good, but the danish is complicated. I've found other CoA with the same pattern, but very small among other patterns in the shield ("Juel-Something", or "Something-Juel"). Maybe I'll classify, one day... Actually, the "blue" ("azure" in english heraldry, "azur" in french) would be darker in France...--Jebulon (talk) 17:27, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Wow, Jebulon! Thanks for your very elaborate work on this! I now have some (for me) completely new terms to learn: affronty, 'fesse wavy argent', 'rays Or', lambrequin. Since you found a few more pics on Commons, where this Juel family CoA is found, I am wondering whether I should create Category:Coats of arms of Juel family, and add many of the very specific CoA specific categories to that category?
Jebulon I decided to be bold and create that category and move the CoA specific categories to that Juel CoA category. Hope you think that is OK? -- Slaunger (talk) 15:17, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Jebulon It appears that sometimes it is also a six ray or in the family CoA. -- Slaunger (talk) 15:31, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Kongratz ! I've added some. Yes, seven rays is unusual in heraldry (I created the category). It seems to me to be a mistake of the heraldist.--Jebulon (talk) 16:15, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Jebulon: I just read da:Juel in Danish about the Juel family where their CoA is described. Here it says six rays and occasional seven rays Or. So it appears it is not an accident, or, if it is, such a prominent accident, that it is now 'accepted' as another form of their CoA. -- Slaunger (talk) 16:24, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Hey, do you realize that we are talking about CoA together ? Do you believe this ? 😳--Jebulon (talk) 18:24, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Jebulon: Hahaha, yes, I guess I am getting more nuanced in my interests Face-smile.svg; or I am just getting old. But I agree; some years ago that would have been unthinkable! -- Slaunger (talk) 18:28, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
And actually, you would probably be surprised if you knew what I am reading about right now; gothic church arches and their entry in Denmark and the transition from the use of travertine to red brick stone as construction material in the early middle age! -- Slaunger (talk) 18:32, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
euh...mmmh...You think you are getting old because you are now interested in the same things than me ? I'm interested in heraldry since I was teenager... Looooool !--Jebulon (talk) 19:03, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
And nice teamwork, Villy Fink Isaksen! You already added the picture to da:Niels Juel! -- Slaunger (talk) 18:57, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Fra et romersk osteria[edit]

Maleriet er nu FP, og jeg tænkte hvornår skal det være dagens billede, en mulighed er den 23. maj (i et ledigt år) det er da:Carl Blochs fødselsdag. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 19:09, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Det var da en god idé Villy! Jeg finder et ledigt år og smider den ind der. -- Slaunger (talk) 19:23, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
@Villy Fink Isaksen:. Det blev næste år. Er beskrivelsen, som den skal være, synes du? -- Slaunger (talk) 15:07, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Først fandt jeg det for kort, men det er jo ikke en artikel. Men det kunne godt fortælles at det var en testamentarisk gave i 1935, i stedet for bare "acquired". Se evt. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 15:30, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
