Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York, fifth son of King Edward III: France (ancient) and England quarterly, a label of three points argent, each point charged with three torteaux. (From his seal, 1391.)

Vincent, however, attributes to Edward a label (which possibly he bore after his father's death) of three points, the first and third charged respectively with three castles of Castile and three lions of Leon, and the second charged with three castles of Castile in dexter and three lions of Leon in sinister (as depicted here).

Prior to his marriage he used the arms of his father, undifferenced, following German practice.
