Pin "Royal Prussian Eagle"
£2.96 inc. tax

£2.47 ex. tax
? Tax based on United Kingdom.

This stunning pin epitomises the Prussian royal family. The royal eagle was the coat of arms of the kingdom of Prussia until 1947 after the end of World War II and the subsequent dissolution of the state of Prussia. The family coat of arms has undergone a lot of changes since it was first officially adapted in 1701 by King Frederick I as the official coat of arms of Prussia when it was portrayed with a royal crown on its head and the title, "FR" on its breast representing "Fridericus Rex" (King Frederick). The royal eagle of the Hohenzollern family was given a scepter an an orb during the reign of Frederick's son, King Frederick William I. As the prominent insignia of the great Prussian monarchy and its subsequent free state, this custom lapel pin is the perfect souvenir! It is nostalgic, historic and eye catching!


The Royal Prussian Coat of Arms

As the ruling monarchs during the Prussian kingdom and the German Empire, the Hohenzollern family adopted their own family coat of arms that showed their royal status, territories, alliances and divine right to rule. The House of Hohenzollern used the motto "Nihil Sine Deo", which in English translated to "Nothing Without God." When it was first adopted in 1192 the family's coat of arms originated as a simple shield. The royal eagle - as the heraldic animal of Prussia - dates back to the imperial eagle of the Holy Roman Empire. As a new king ascended to the throne and new territories and alliances were annexed to Prussia, the design of the Prussian coat of arms expanded and contracted until the fall of the ruling House of Hohenzollern in 1918 after World War I. The succeeding Free State of Prussia under the Weimar republic adapted the royal eagle insignia except the royal crown, the orb and scepter and the "FR" crest.
