There's a nice post today over at Savage Reflections by Berowne about the granting of a coat of arms to William Shakespeare, "ye Player", back in the day. It's a well-informed post, covering even disagreement between Garter King of Arms Dethick and York Herald Ralph Brooke about the grant, and is certainly worth reading. You can find it on the web at: http://savagereflections.blogspot.com/2010/03/laid-back-shakespeare-6.html
