THE ROUND TABLE ARMS SOC. AND GENEALOGY FORUM (See new forum image arrangements.)


Dedicated to helping others become armigers with understanding that heraldry and genealogy are strong allies. The RTA forum has focus based upon Britain and Crusader themed materials.


Historical:"Up to the year 1530 few people had been granted their Coat of Arms by any official body or monarch. 90% of Arms had been assumed by individuals as an heritable right without question..." --History of Heraldry


Technical: "Seven principal tinctures and a group of furs, plus notional furs that are essentially the same tinctures arranged in specific geometric patterns, form the field of the shield. These seven are the two metals of gold and silver, and the five colours of red, blue, black, green and purple." --http://www.baronage.co.uk
