    In which cast I suggest "respondent", "conspondent", or "comportant" if you want the sense of react.

    Hmmm. They're also spymasters, but actually, that might work better.

    "Agunt nam/sic" could work then.

    Edit: looking at Latin usage :-
    Ut videmus, ut audimus, ita agunt.
    Ut videmus audimusque, ita agunt
    As we look and listen, so you act.

    Guys need some help, In 1968 American College of Heraldry and Arms presented a coat of arms to LBJ. They later in the same year granted one to Spiro Agnew and in 1970 one for then President Nixon. Johnson's and Agnew's one is easy to find and is list here https://www.americanheraldry.org/he...us-americans/presidents-of-the-united-states/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_personal_coats_of_arms_of_Presidents_of_the_United_States and here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_personal_coats_of_arms_of_Vice_Presidents_of_the_United_States . Yet there is no image of Nixon's one, does anybody know what it was?

    Was he given one? The American Heraldry Society doesn't list him.

    In the Johnson article it states

    So they did at sometime though, I think the two societies are unrelated at least officially if the 60's one went bankrupt

    May I request a coat of arms for an Empire of California under Emperor Norton?

    Can't be the MacMillan Earls of Stockton since they have different arms. Did a quick google on the escutcheon and noone came up.

    What if Ireland stayed part of the UK and got its own version of the UK's arms like Scotland does OTL? It might look like this.

    Well, I guess it's the arms of the Crown of Aragon if it never became part of Spain! (But somehow still with the Order of the Golden Fleece? It needed an order there to look good, shut up). Quarterly, the arms of the Crown of Aragon's constituent kingdoms: Aragon proper, Naples, Sicily, and Sardinia; supported by the traditional Aragonese griffins and topped off by Aragon's traditional dragon crest.

    Some thoughts on alternate Angevin/Plantagenet Arms where Henry II has not married Eleanor/Alienor. And assuming that Henry used a gold lion on red that would have a white cross overlain when agreeing to a crusade.
    1) gold lion rampant on red. Guardant?
    2) gold lion passant guardant on red. This would later be used for Aquitaine OTL.
    3) 2 gold lions passant guardant on red. This was used by John OTL while governing Normandy and became the Norman Arms.
    1b/2b/3b) as above but field is white cross on red.
    1c/2c/3c) as before but field is semy of white crosses on red.
    4) golden sun on red field with b and c field variants.
    5) golden wings on red field with b and c variants
    6) plain field - abc variants as before.
    Comments and suggestions requested!

    What about white cross on red with a lion or lions (passant guardant is what I associate with England, but there is also evidence of rampant, so I think dealer's choice) in the first quarter?

    Other than that, why not try a couple out and post here for feedback? I'm having a bit of difficult visualising the 4 and 5 variants.

    Well, I am saving this similar one for Brittany:
    I have limited access to a full computer at present so want to narrow down options first.
