Riddle369 22 Fleurdelisee 9CoatsOfArms jpg

There is a series of nine coats of arms in the ballroom of the castle:

  • Or, three Fleurs de lis Azure.
  • Azure, a Bendsinister Or.
  • Or, a Fleur de lis Azure.
  • Azure, a Cross Or.
  • Or, five Fleur de lis Azure in saltire.
  • Azure, a Fess Or.
  • Or, two Fleur de lis Azure in bend.
  • Azure, a Saltire Or.
  • Or, four Fleur de lis Azure.

There are so many Fleurs de lis that everyone, except the joker, calls it the «fleurdelisée» room. Nobody knows the reason why the joker says there is none, do you?

Five hurts and five pommes

Riddle369 32 Hurts Pommes Question jpg

Transform the blazon «Or» into «Or, five Pommes in saltire» and the blazon «Argent» into «Argent, five Hurts in saltire» moving the pommes and hurts through both metals, without breaking the rule of tinctures.

You can change one charge by another one, but only once.

For example, if you change «Sable, a Bend Argent» by «Sable, a Pale Argent», then the Pommes can arrive to «Or» blazon. However, this is not a solution, because the Hurts cannot walk to «Argent» blazon.

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.
