This month's Aether Salon brought His Grace, Edward Pearse, the Duke of Argylle, to discus the subject of Heraldry.
During some technical difficulties, Miss Ceejay Writer entertained the audience with an impromptu dance routine.
Eventually things sorted themselves out, and the duke was on his way. He observed: "The use of symbols to identify kings goes back as far as ancient Egypt."
"England's Henry II is believed to have used a pair of gold lions as his personal arms, although the colours are unknown. His fHis son Richard, added a third lion and this symbol of three lions has continued to be the Royal Arms of England to this day."
I had to leave somewhat early, but one can view the full transcript at the Aether Salon's aetheric Journal.
