The Leinster Arms

The similarities between the coat-of-arms of the Dukes of Leinster and the Barons de Ros are quite obvious, thus indicating the marital lineage of the two families.

Whilst the crest and the supporters differ, the arms Argent, a saltire gules - or the saltire of St Patrick as we now know it - feature predominantly.

The motto, Crom A Boo - Crom to Victory - is the same.

His Grace the Duke of Leinster is the Premier Duke, Marquess and Earl of Ireland; while the Lord de Ros is the Premier Baron of England. Both families share extraordinary lineages.
