The Hand-pavise (targe?) of Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary (1443-90; King, 1458) -- Viennese Master, ca 1485-1490 -- Around the combined coat of arms of New Hungary, Bohemia, Dalmatia and Ancient Hungary are grouped the king's further coats of arms and the inscription “Alma genitrix Maria interpella pro rege Mathia”. From the charge on the Hunyadi shield, which impales the central coat of arms, Matthias adopted the surname Corvinus ("The Raven"). -- (Paris, Musée de l'Armée)
