Armigerous vs. non-Armigerous Awards

An Armigerous Award is an Award, Grant or Patent of Arms. All other awards are non-Armigerous.

In our Kingdom of An Tir, the Award of Arms is mainly nonspecific. The specialized Orders of the Goutte de Sang, Grey Goose Shaft, Hastae Leonis, Jambe de Lion, Lion et de la Lance and White Scarf each carry a Grant of Arms. The Noble Peerage Orders of the Chivalry, Laurel and Pelican and the Royal Peerage Orders of the Viscounty, County and Duchy each carry a Patent of Arms.


The Heraldic Achievement Scroll is one that documents an Armigerous Award. In order to create a Heraldic Achievement Scroll:

Black Lion Principal Herald will confirm the accuracy of the recipient's name and blazon in the scroll text and the accuracy of the emblazon in the scroll graphic. If verifiable, Black Lion will then sign and seal the scroll.


Any scroll that does not document an Award, Grant or Patent of Arms must:


Note: Use of the Arms of the Kingdom of An Tir on any scroll is somewhat circumscribed. When used on an Achievement Scroll, the Kingdom's device must be less prominent than the device of the recipient.
