This is my attempt to render Holger, the Dane's shield bearing "three hearts and three lions" from Poul Anderson's book of that title. The design own a lot to the Royal Arms of Denmark, This version is revised to adjust for changes in Drawshield's handling of artist's hints over time, and to fix the mantling to follow the rule of tinctures.

If you would like to modify this blazon and see the effects .
