Thanks to + Laura Gibbs for reminding me that Margaret of Anjou was born on this day

As Queen of England, she empaled the English arms to her paternal arms, with a weird repetition.

Parti per pale. Dexter: grand parti per pale, grand dexter: Azure three fleur-de-lys Or (France); grand sinister: quarterly 1 and 4 - Azure three fleur-de-lys Or (France), 2 and 3 - Gules, three lions passant gardant Or armed and langued Azure (for Henry VI of England).
Sinister: grand parti of six (three over three), i. Barry of eight Argent and Gules (for the Kingdom of Hungary); ii. Azure seme-de-lys Or a label of three points Gules (France ancient a label of three points Gules) (for the Angevin Kingdom of Naples); iii.
