Duchy of Jülich
DUCHY OF JÜLICH
|In Gold ein schreitender, schwarzer, rot bezungter und rot bewehrter Löwe.
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.
