Bermanian Heraldry

While formal coats-of-arms have been known in Bermania since the 1200s (we do read the newspapers you know), heraldry did not take hold of the popular fancy until the 19th century.  Previous to this, only the King and other nobles charged with representing the King to foreign heads of state found it necessary to display shields of arms.  From the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment the primary form of symbolic identification among the nobility consisted of traditional plywood lawn ornaments.
As in the rest of Europe, the King is considered the font of all honors in Bermania.   It is indeed considered a very great honor to be granted a coat of arms in Bermania, and this usually only accompanies an elevation to the peerage.  The King is traditionally  head of the Collage of Heralds, ex officio.
The many foreign sovereigns and nobles holding Bermanian grants of arms, and often Bermanian citizenship, derives not from His Majesty's title as King of Bermania, but from his status as Terra Orbis Nostris Imperator acquired in 1544.
