"These arms are those
of the first foundress Queen, Margaret of Anjou, which she derived from those of
her father René, Duke of Anjou, with the addition of a green border for the
College. The six quarters of these arms represent the six lordships (either
actual or titular) which he claimed. Quarterly of six:
(Margaret's father is known to the French
as "le bon Roi René" - I'm afraid most of his titles, including the royal
ones, were very nominal indeed. The impressive shield is make-believe.)
- Barry of eight argent and gules (for Hungary);
- Azure semy of fleurs-de-lis or, a label of three points gules (for
Ancient or Naples);
- Argent, a cross potent between four crosses crosslet potent or (for
- Azure semy of fleurs-de-lis or, a bordure gules (for
- Azure semy of crosses crosslet fitchy, two barbels haurient addorsed or
- Or, on a bend gules three alerions displayed argent (for
all within a bordure vert."
