This is an ongoing project to create an exhaustive ordinary of Johann Siebmacher's Wappenbuch from 1605. I am working from the digitization of it available here. If you find any error, please let me know. As a work in progress, it will be updated as I have time.

All blazons are my own. Note that in some cases, shields with a helmet facing sinister have had their arms reversed as well (e.g., a bend is displayed as a bend sinister, the tinctures of the field reversed, etc. So if you think you've found an error, double check the helm on top!) Each blazon is identified with the name of the owner as it appears in Siebmacher, with these conventions: I have transcribed vocalic v as u, and expanded , Gē:, and to en, genannt, and Von, respectively. The number in parentheses is the plate number on which the arms occur.

AXE - 1

Gules, a pickaxe argent between two mullets of six points sable, die Thümmel (156).

Gules, an axe bendwise Or, die Trzinsky (74).

Gules, an axe bendwise Or headed argent, in base a rose argent seeded Or, von Bardeleben (179).

Per bend azure and Or, a unicorn passant up the line of division and an axe bendwise counterchanged, die Rubli (203).

Per pale gules and sable, an axe Or, von Besl (173).

Quarterly 1st and 4th per bend sable and Or, an ax Or hafted argent, 2nd and 3rd per fess argent and sable, a demi-boar contourny counterchanged, die Gænger (35).
