There's a problem with File:Mary of Teck Arms.svg. The English lions are in the first and fourth quarters on one side, but in the second and third on the other. DrKiernan (talk) 08:29, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Trenchard coat of arms[edit]

Excellent work on File:Louis Mountbatten Earl of Burma Arms.svg. Would you be able to do a similar job for Trenchard's coat of arms. A photograph of the arms is on the right. Many thanks. 87.114.170.3 16:43, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Coat of arms of identification[edit]

In the "Description" field when describing a coat of arms image, you seem to place the wrong person's name fairly frequently (I corrected four errors of this type today). AnonMoos (talk) 16:38, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I tend to use a previous example as a template for further descriptions, so it is quite likely that I occassionally forget to change a necessary line here or there. Thanks for fixing them up. Its nice to see that somebody noticed them at least. Cheers. A1 Aardvark (talk) 21:55, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, A1 Aardvark!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File:Kevin S. MacLeod Arms.svg[edit]

The representation of the shield of Kevin Macleod, which you have placed on his wikipedia page is a false representation of his coat of arms granted by the Canadian Heraldic Authority. The copyright is maintained by the Crown of Canada. Please be advised that the Chief Herald of Canada has been contacted and apprised of the situation.

Yet another nasty comment from someone who doesn't know what they're talking about (and who doesn't even have the courtesy to sign their post)! Wikipedia is an increasingly thankless and exhausting task. A1 Aardvark (talk) 12:48, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

File:William Shakespeare Arms.svg[edit]

The form of the lance you used there probably looks more like a serious cavalry weapon, but less like a tilting spear as traditionally depicted in English heraldry; for my version, see File:Coat of arms of William Shakespeare and his father.svg ... AnonMoos (talk) 01:20, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Arms of David Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley[edit]

How is Viscount Linley able to quarter his mothers arms, as she was not an heraldic heiress? I'm not questioning the veracity of your work here - I'm curious to know how it was possible!

Presumably, Lady Sarah Chatto uses (or would use) these arms, but with Snowdon undifferenced(?)

Is there an analogous situation with James Ogilvy? Does he use his late father's arms quatered with those of his mother, Princess Alexandra?

Petecollier (talk) 18:27, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Petecollier, I'm not absolutely certain, but I believe Viscount Linley quarter's his mothers arms because those are her arms. They were specifically granted to her (with the differencing) and I suppose Viscount Linley then inherits both his father's and mother's arms. Does that seem logical? I believe that, as Princess Alexandra was also granted arms specifically for her use, her son would indeed have the right to quarter both his parents arms. Cheers! A1 Aardvark (talk) 09:07, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

She would be a heraldic heiress in right of her own arms because they were granted to her in her own right. As regards Princess Alexandra, per a 1975 Order-in-Council, the arms granted to all male-line grandchildren (male or female), with the exception of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, are hereditary and bear the same cadency marks and are inherited in the same way arms granted to non-royal people are, and obey the normal law of arms that the arms of the closer royal family do not follow. So yes, Viscount Linley is certainly entitled to quarter his mother's arms (as many sons of Princesses have done in the past), but he is not obliged to (for example, the late Earl of Harewood did not quarter his mother's arms. Also, those who have quartered the arms of their royal mothers in this way have always done it with a Royal Warrant, not just done it anyway,JWULTRABLIZZARD (talk) 16:29, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm almost certain that this is incorrect. British royal heraldry does not follow the same rules as normal heraldry, and the arms of a Sovereign's children are not heritable. This is why male-line grandchildren are specifically granted their own arms, rather than merely using appropriately differenced versions of their fathers' arms. It use to be the case that no differenced royal arms were heritable, until the 1975 warrant changed it for the arms of grandchildren only, not children. --Cymrevington (talk) 06:16, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

But she would regardless have been an heraldic heiress as regards herself, and plenty of families descended from the Royal family in the female line (such as the Tecks, the Schleswig-Holsteins, and the Carisbrooke branch of the Mountbattens) quartered the arms of their mothers, with of course a royal warrant authorising it in each case. That said, I'm sceptical myself about the arms depicted in Wikipedia for Viscount Linley.JWULTRABLIZZARD (talk) 15:12, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
