The Lion of England has been a part of heraldry for as long as the Shield itself. First appearing in 12th century royal emblems, this majestic feline is known to symbolize strength and courage. With the Lion of England’s wise portrayal on the top shield where it holds an impaled collective set-of arms, it represents the unity between King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour who were able to combine their separate families under one banner.
