PAPAL HERALDRY - THE COATS OF ARMS OF THE POPES

Below the list of popes (and opponents) and, when known, their arms. In some cases also their assumed arms are/will be included when known. True papal heraldry only starts in the 14th century, but some older arms are known for 12th and 13th century popes. Most of these, however, are later attributed to the popes.
