General armorial of Europe by Rietstap

Rietstap’s intention was to compile the blazons of every armorial family in Europe, from Brittany and Utrecht to Dorset and Transylvania, and he made an excellent start before his death, though he ventured the opinion that the labor involved would be too great to complete it.

Many, many names appear in his work that were previously collected nowhere else. The father and son team of V. Rolland took twenty-three years to complete the monumental work the Supplementwhich eventually included more thandistinct blazons.

The Rollands’ six volumes of illustrations were intended to make life easier for those to whom formal heraldic language was as foreign as the French in which Rietstap wrote his descriptions. For uncommon names, and especially for non-English names, Rietstap and all the supplementary volumes to his original work can often provide a jumping-off point — the discovery that, somewhere in the past, a family in which you’re interested was important enough to be entitled to coat-armor.


The volumes are in French, but the information is stereotyped, and easily understood. One person found this helpful.
