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.


Argent, two hunting horns palewise addorsed issuant from a trimount sable, Hornberg (226).

Or, a man issuant from base affronty sable capped sable trimmed argent, maintaining in front of him two straight trumpets in saltire argent, die Mangsreuter (85).

Per fess azure and gules, two hunting horns counterchanged, die Horning (53).

Per pale gules and Or, two bugles inverted, bases to center, sable and gules, von Wermesdorf (54).

Quarterly 1st and 4th gules, a pale argent, 2nd and 3rd Or, in pale two bugles sable, von Fraunhofen (25).

Quarterly sable and argent, two straight trumpets in saltire counterchanged, Payreüt (220).

Sable, two straight trumpets in saltire argent, die Gribel von Kalckenreüt (120).
