The Moor in European Heraldry
If you have ever done an online search on the Black history of Europe, chances are you have seen those two-dimensional cartoon silhouettes that preface this article at some point or another.
Our previous study on the reconquest of Spain and Portugal from Moorish control was an introduction to the African Moor in European heraldry. In this article, we will explore that topic further.
We will cover the history behind the heraldry, the artists who were involved, the historians who contributed to our understanding of these works, and the meaning of these images.
