Stained Glass Civic Heraldry in Heidelberg Castle, Part 1

There is a lot of armorial stained glass in Heidelberg Castle. In this and the next two posts, I will share some of the civic coats of arms that can be found there.

Here are the first ten (of 28) coats I have been able to identify (admittedly, some of them were pretty easy, as the name of the city/town/region were written on the glass):

Boxberg, Germany:

Caub am Rheim (Kaub), Germany:

Eppingen, Germany:

Frankenthal, Germany:

Germersheim, Germany:

Groß-Umstadt, Germany:

Heidelberg, Germany:

Heppenheim, Germany (the small shields on either side are those of Bavaria (Bayern) and the Palatinate (Pfalz), both of which we have seen in recent posts, respectively):

Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany:

and finally, Kaiserslautern, Germany:
