Re: [albanach] Correct term confirmation?
- The Moray arms displays no bordure - there are some heraldic
representations that strive for a chiseled, 3-dimensional effect; it's
very misleading (as well as being ghastly artwork), since such a thing
does, in fact, look a bit like an heraldic bordure. But the Moray Ancient
blazon is definitive: "Azure, three mullets, two and one,
argent". No bordure. You do encounter marks of cadency at times in
later versions; the label, the bend, and yes, a bordure, among others; but
that's 15th and 16th century stuff, it isn't seen much in the 13th or 14th
century. And when a cadency mark does occur, it's always entered into the
blazon in regular fashion. I'd have to look it up, but I think Diane's
subject was eldest son - if so, he'd use the Label, if it were in use at
all in the 1290's.
