HERALDRY OF THE RULING NOBLES OF CALONTIR

by Modar Neznanich

Calontir has a long tradition of both having strong ruling nobles to guide the Kingdom, and of having a strong sense of heraldic display. Yet I find that many members of our populace today are not familiar with the devices of those who have guided our Kingdom. Following is a list of those nobles and their heraldic devices. Note that alternate spellings or versions of names are in parentheses.
