z06: Dreux II van Humières, heer van Humières


The black lattice in the silver field visualizes the Humières family coat of arms. Whether the barred hat or basket also formed part of the fifteenth-century coat of arms of this knight or is a sixteenth-century invention, cannot be determined. The historic source material shows that there are various variants, with and without an element on the helm. Photographs made of this Coat of Arms in the twentieth century bring many gaps and damages to light that indicate that this painting has been damaged for quite some time.
