Good afternoon, today I have for you the family crest of the last name Manrique. Mr. Pablo Andrés Manriquez Galvao, requested the shield of the last name MANRIQUEZ, in the Spanish Nobiliary I found the last name Manrique, without the “Z”, and it is not specific about it being the same in two forms. Eventually I found in a source of Anglo-Saxon heraldry, the statement that they are the same last name. I took more time since I wanted to verify such statement.
Derived Castilian last name of the name Manrique. The trunk of this lineage seems to be in Toba of Valdivielso, in the county of Burgos. Another house was located in Salamanca, and another in the Villa of Benavente and one more in Tarazona. This last name proved its nobility in Santiago’s Order and San Juan de Jerusalem Order. Don José Manrique de Arana was created Marquis of Villa Alegre de Andollo on December 7, 1685; don Nicolás Manrique de Lara, became Marquis of Lara on December 10,1739, and don Jerónimo Manrique de Lara, became Count of Almudez de Toledo on February 23, 1790.
Its Arms: In gules field, two boilers jaqueladas of gold and sable, on a column, with four sinople serpents, sticking out of each side of the handles, two towards inside and two towards out. Motto “US NON OF KING, KINGS COME FROM US.”
