13th C German Heraldry Anyone??

Post by Atheling » Tue Mar 06, 2012 10:33 am

I'm currently in the throws of collecting heraldic info on who may have ridden with the Teutonic Order in the 13th C. I'm really not looking for the heraldry of the Teutonic order, rather those knights that would have fought along side of them.

Does anyone know of any resources? Perhaps someone does a flag sheet of some kind?

Thanks in advance,

Darrell.

Should it be the knights who followed the Teutonic Order to the East

or the Knights who fought alongside with them in the Holy Land?

It isn't that important really as long as the heraldry is genuinly, as far as we can tell, from the 13thC.
