English blazon wanted


The Duchy was created from the County Jülich in 1356 and existed until 1423 when it was incorporated in the Duchy of Jülich-Berg.

The arms show a black lion in gold, the arms of the oldest Counts of Jülich (1081-1207). The black lion has been used to represent the area by the successive rulers. The arms can also be seen in a number of towns and regions that were ruled by the original counts of their successors. For example Jülich, Düren, Gelderland and many more.
