SS collars

Post by Todd Eriksen »

I tried sending this a few days ago, but evidently it didn't go through, so I'll try again. Sorry if this is a double. My question is, when did the SS collars come into play in the Medieval period? Was it in the 1300's or later in the 15th, early 16th centuries?

It's a symbol of the Lancastrians, isn't it? I think it just dates as far back as Henry IV. (There's an interesting article interpreting why they're esses at http://www.richard111.com/medieval_livery_collars.htm by the way.)

Intresting that this mentions Thornhill. That is where my lord Sir John Savile is buried, although it doesn't mention him specifically.
