Germanic Shield
The Imperial Eagle of the Holy Roman Empire

 German Heraldry has its roots in the heraldic achievements of the Holy Roman Empire. Known as a symbol of Imperial power and the earliest symbol of the Holy Roman Empire, special significance was held for the noble Eagle, sometimes symbolized with two and even three heads. It dates back to ancient Roman times and is first seen at the palace of Charlemagne, who had a statue of the Imperial Eagle created for his palace in Aachen, a symbol that would last through Germany’s history into modern times.  The double headed eagle eventually came to represent the present king while the single headed eagle represented the future emperor.

Eventually, it became the symbol for one of the most noble German Houses, the House of Hohenzollern during the middle ages. Originating in the 11th Century around Swabia (a lower present day Germany area), this house produced a number of noble leaders, including  electors, kings and emperors of  Germany, Romania, Prussia and Brandenberg.

The House of Hohenzollern, became two dynasties, one Catholic and the other Protestant.  The two ruled for nearly a thousand years in Germany until the end of World War I when the German Imperial Rule was overthrown and the Weimer Republic was established.
