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.


Azure, a pile wavy issuant from sinister between three fleurs-de-lys Or, die Blantzen (158).

Gules, issuant from an elephant's trunk argent, three demi-fleurs-de-lys Or, von Bolstat (120).

Or, on a bend azure three fleurs-de-lys Or, die Gugel (212).

Per fess azure and gules, in chief three fleurs-de-lys Or, Prümb (13).

Per pale azure and argent, three fleurs-de-lys Or, von Kökeritz (155).

Quarterly 1st and 4th azure, three fleurs-de-lys Or, 2nd and 3rd gules, an escarbuncle of chain within and conjoined to an orle of chain Or, Franckreich (2).
