On this day, in 1772, was born Géraud Christophe Michel Duroc, Duke of Frioul. He was nicknamed 'Napoleon's Shadow'

The arms are blazoned, in French, as "Écartelé : aux premier et quatrième d'or au château de trois tours donjonnées de gueules, fermées, ajourées et girouettées de sable ; aux deuxième et troisième d'azur au cavalier armé de toutes pièces, tenant de la dextre un sabre nu, le tout d'argent ; sur le tout de sinople, au rocher d'or mouvant de la pointe, surmonté en chef d'une étoile d'artent ; au chef des ducs de l'Empire brochant."

In English (please fix this attempt, it is not very good):
Quaterly. 1st and 4th: Or, a tower triple towered Gules masoned, flagged and ported Sable. 2nd and 3rd: Azure, a knight in armour mounted on a horse, his dexter hand holding a sword Argent.
Over all, an inestucheon Vert, a rock issuant from the base Or, in chief a mullet Argent. (modified arms of Duroc)
Over all a chief Gules, a semy of mullets Argent (Dukes of the Empire)
