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.)

His son, Edward [of Norwich], Earl of Cambridge (later 2nd Duke of York), until he succeeded his father (i.e. before 1402), bore the same with an additional difference of a bordure of Spain, as were later borne by his younger brother Richard [of Conisburgh] who was created Earl of Cambridge in 1414. 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).

The quarterings of these arms (depicted in Louda and Maclagan, Lines of Succession) appear to be
(1) Count of Evreux (granted to Stewart of Darnley by the Dauphin),
(2) Stewart of Darnley,
(3) Lennox,
(4) Lordship of Galloway,
(5) Earldom of Angus (differenced by a bend sable),
(6) Lordship of the Forest (with wrong tinctures? - poss. should be Argent four piles vert),
(7) Stewart of Bonkyll (should the bend be azure not sable?),
(8) Douglas.
See a similar blazon described at http://www.heraldry-scotland.co.uk/formans.html. The Editor would welcome clarification as to the correct arms of Lord Darnley.
