Arms of 1st & 2nd Dukes of York (1385 creation) [Plantagenet]

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).
