Wales Herald Extraordinary


Wales Herald Extraordinary

Wales Herald of Arms Extraordinary ("Herodr Arbennig Cymru" in Welsh) is a current English officer of arms extraordinary. Wales is a royal herald, but is not a member of the chapter of the College of Arms. There was a Wales Herald in the late fourteenth century, but the office was shortlived. [ [http://www.cgnfhs.org.uk/walehe98.htm Wales Herald Extraordinary] ] It was re-established in 1963 as an officer of arms extraordinary. The first appointee was Francis Jones. The badge dates from 1967 and depicts a treasured medieval Welsh possession, the "Croes Naid"--a cross heavily gilded and jewelled and said to contain a fragment of the true cross of Jesus Christ. The badge is blazoned "Issuant from an open Royal Crown of the 13th century Or a representation of a Croes Naid also Or jewelled proper".

The current Wales Herald of Arms Extraordinary is Michael Powell Siddons, MA MB ChirB (Cambridge) FSA.
