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 ē, Gē:, and V̄ to en, genannt, and Von, respectively. The number in parentheses is the plate number on which the arms occur.
Argent, a horse's head couped gules, die Schlegel (177).
Argent, a horse's head couped gules collared sable, die Zobel (100).
Argent, a horse's head couped sable, von Plieningen (110).
Quarterly 1st and 4th argent, a horse's head couped gules, 2nd and 3rd per fess Or and sable, an eagle's leg couped a-la-quise counterchanged, overall an escutcheon Or charged with a bend counterermine, Ennenkhl (33).
