Re: Discuss: Heraldry question (Long!)(not any more!)

Greetings Evan, sappy looks tired after all that, and you must be

My Mum-in-law has a GoA in An Tir and she uses the title.  So, at least one of 
the Western Kingdoms use it, I (wrongly it seems) assumed that it was A Western 
tradition and not a heresy thing, or I surely would have guessed Atenveldt;^).

With the replies that I have received both public and private, I still cannot 
come to a conclusion that I should use it or not.  Since it seems that a GoA is 
uncommon in Atlantia and not unheard of, there is precident to use it.  
However, only a few Royals have given  a GoA and as you(Evan) said, it takes 
more than one Reign to make a custom.  Which leads me to ask, how many GoA's 
have been given and which Royals have given them?  I think I heard someone say
