In the older source documents to the German nobility was some silly fairy story invented, to explain coats of arms and name of training. As we know, the Brothers Grimm about the causes of the disappearance of many important announcements expressed their own views and even the learned in his heraldic Bernd “Main pieces of the coat of arms Science Bd. II. S. 67 ff” maintaining and researching old family legends recommended. The author does this say about the name and arms training of individual nobility in his book again.
