The College of Arms (abbrev.: CoA) is the organization that devises and approves heraldry used within The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc. (TRMN). It is modeled after the canon College of Arms of the Star Kingdom of Manticore, which in turn is inspired by the real-world College of Arms of the United Kingdom.

The College was established by an Act of the House of Lords as ratified by Admiralty Order 1807-04 in 2018.

Structure

The Manticoran College of Arms utilizes the three historical ranks of heralds, referred to as Officers of Arms:

  • King of Arms, the highest ranking officer presiding over a group of heralds. The title is short for "King of Heralds of Arms".
  • Herald of Arms
  • Pursuivant of Arms, the junior rank of officers, a herald-in-training.

Collectively, the Officers form the College of Arms, which is headed by the Earl Marshal along with the three planetary Kings of Arms. Under them a number are a number of heralds and pursuivants whose offices are named after the some of the secondary titles of the monarch of the SKM.
