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.

FLEUR-DE-LYS - 6 or more

Argent, six fleurs-de-lys Or, Sultzbach (220).

Azure, a bend between seven fleurs-de-lys bendwise argent, von Mergenthal (152).

Azure, six fleurs-de-lys argent, a chief indented Or, die Kemmerer von Dalburgk (122).

Per fess Or and sable semy-de-lys argent and fretty Or, a demi-lion gules, Goar (224).

Quarterly 1st and 4th gules, six fleurs-de-lys argent, 2nd and 4th Or, an eagle sable charged with a crescent argent, Presslaw (11).

Sable, six fleurs-de-lys and a chief argent, die Brumser von Rudisheim (123).
