...who would they be and what would they be like?
Having just finished A Dance with Dragons I thought it might be fun to play at the idea with my own family. Here's what I ended up with:
Coat of arms: Two argent crescents, an argent palm leaf, and an argent fess against an azure field
Words: "Where there is life, there is hope" (Latin: Vivis sperandum)
Region: The Barrowlands, the North (IRL: Ayrshire, Scotland)
So what have you got? Feel free to make up stuff if you can't find anything - a lot of this information is really easy to find if you have a European name (as I do) but I do appreciate that it will be more difficult for people whose ancestors didn't live in feudal Europe.
