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.

CASTLE and TOWER - 1 - All other tinctures

Argent, a castle azure, Ravenspurg 9219).

Argent, a triple tower sable roofed gules, von der Wenge (190).

Argent, an eagle sable, surmounted by an escutcheon argent charged with a castle gules, Rotenburg (219).

Or, a tower gules, von Eychholtz (51).

Per pale azure and argent, a chevron gules and in base a tower issuant from base counterchanged, von Waldenburg (129).

Quarterly 1st and 4th Or, a tower sable, 2nd and 3rd sable, a lion argent, all within a bordure compony gules and argent, die Hinderöfer von Muethen (117).
