Queens Beast New Release The Falcon of the Plantagenets September 2018
The Falcon passed to The Queen from the Plantagenet king Edward III. He chose the symbol to embody his love of hawking but it is also closely associated with his great-great-grandson, Edward IV. The white Falcon at The Queen’s coronation held a shield with a badge depicting a second white falcon within an open golden ‘fetterlock’ or padlock.
The fetterlock and the falcon were popular emblems in the Houses of both York and Lancaster, as they had descended from Edward III’s younger sons John of Gaunt and Edmund of Langley. The fetterlocks used by John and Edmund were always locked, perhaps to show they had no claim to the throne. Edward IV gave his younger son, Richard, the badge of a white falcon within an open fetterlock – the lock Edward forced to take the throne. Henry VII, who united the houses of York and Lancaster with his marriage to Elizabeth of York, often used a falcon symbol and it was said to be the favourite badge of Queen Elizabeth I.
The Falcon and lock look pretty good, should be a winner on release.

This information is the history that really makes this series pop to me. We may not be fans of the monarchy, but the lineages and how the symbols have so much purpose really ignites the imagination and thoughts.
In terms of the series, I think the Falcon will be preform extremely well and outdo the bull. I like the whole series, but I think the falcon will end up at the top of the pile of coins along with the lion and griffin. Just my take on it. Thanks so much brother for sharing!!
I think so the falcon will be hot,
Wow interesting I didn't realize the royals participated in hawking
they do everything there sick fuckers
Done upvoted resteemed and comment
Great information! Thanks for sharing

I love this series and I am eager to buy the Falcon.
I think the Falcon will be a real winner
I love the designs and much more the historical and representative meaning of each image I hope to be for the liberation
I can’t wait for this :)
