Altheim Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess into Or over Gules over Vert, the base Vert is charged with a 3-fold fess wavy Argent, above a sinister facing beaver rampant reguardant Sable garnished Gules (sometimes having proper colours), tongued Gules and holding an inescutcheon Gules chrged with a fess Argent in his forepaws, shield fimbriated Or an crowned by a Ducal coronet of Or and Gules.
Meaning:
The beaver is referring to the former name "Altheim am Biberbach" (= beaver creek). Probably Altheim became a dominion of the Habsburg kin together with Riedlingen around 1300. The inescutcheon is referring to the Austrian dominion.
