The first recorded use was as a gift of a blue shield adorned with small golden lions, given to Geoffrey Plantagenet by Henry I when he married Henry's daughter Matilda in 1127. As long as England had its own shield, it always displayed the lion in some form—the Norman kings of England used motifs featuring the fierce beast, a tradition that became consistent under Henry II and his son Richard I the Lionheart in the twelfth century.
