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 saddlebag sable, Keysersberg (219).

Gules, two scourges in saltire Or, von Eybeswaldt (37).

Or, a saddle gules, die Sattelin (117).

Or, on a wing sable, a spur, point up, argent, von Sporrer (154).

Per fess gules and azure, a snaffle-bit palewise Or, von Wierrant Vogten genannt (40).

Per fess Or and vert, a pair of barnacles sable and three roses gules, von Aschenbruch (188).

Per pall inverted argent, azure, and gules, three scourages conjoined in pall Or, die Ungeraten (70).

Quarterly 1st and 4th argent, a demi-horse contourny gules, 2nd and 3rd gules, a yoke Or, overall an escutcheon azure charged with a cross patty Or, von Petschach (38).
