Quarterly Azure and Gules; overall a leopard face, crowned Or, langued Gules, within a tressure flory Or. Motto: «Entalente a parler d'armes».

Escudo cuartelado de azur y gules; brochante sobre el todo, una cabeza de leopardo coronada de oro, lampasada de gules, dentro de un trechor flordelisado de oro. Lema: «Entalente a parler d'armes».

The official blazon of this coat of arms is «Quarterly Azure and Gules a lion’s face crowned with an Ancient Crown Or within a tressure flory on the outer edge of the same». The following are my comments to the official blazon:

  • With «crowned» can be assumed the common default «crowned with an ancient crown».
  • With «tressure flory» can be assumed the common default «tressure flory on the outer edge».
  • I use to specify the «langued», for example Gules or Azure, because I think there is not a common default tincture for «langued» in all heraldic traditions.
  • The use of «overall» can help to understand the blazon, then I add it.

Vilardi, lineage of Italy

Argent, on a pile issuant from the base Azure a saltire Or.

Blazon of the Vilardi lineage of Italy.

Argent, on a pile issuant from the base Azure a saltire Or.

Escudo de plata, una pira de azur cargada de un sotuer de oro.

Illuminated and a free hand finishing.

[Cadenas y Vicent, V. de; 2002; page 138] says that the a pile issuant from the base is «a triangle whose base issues from the base of the shield, being a third of its width», but when it is painted in [Cadenas y Vicent, V. de; 2002; page 268, figure 279] along with the pile the width of the base of both isosceles triangles is 2/3 of the width of the shield. I think the width of 2/3 is, in these 2 cases, better than 1/3 width, because with 1/3 there is not enough room for charges, as shown in the figure below.

Pyre widths compared

There are scholars who say that the pile issuant from the base must not touch the upper edge of the shield and others that its tip should be in the center of the chief. In the previous image, the pile issuant from the base of the 1st shield fulfills the first affirmation, and in the 2nd shield, its tip is in the center of the chief.

I have the doubt if it should not be a saltire raguly.

Juan Francisco Tejero de Rojas y Sandoval, «Linajes de Aragón, Castilla, León, Galicia, Cataluña, Navarra y Vizcaya», 198 hand-numbered pages, each 2, in Arabic numerals, with numerous blank pages not numbered at the beginning and end, hand index on the back of the last page before the back cover, 22 x 17 centimeters, illustrations in the pages 26-29, in the National Library of Spain, signatures Mss/12617, it is estimated from the XVII century.

Unfinished

Although the last page 198 is signed on the back, the book seems unfinished because at the end of the last page there is a last line with a few loose words «Duke of...» which are a sign that it continues on the next page, but the next page is blank.
