 +===== THE RULES OF HERALDRY AND THEIR APPLICATION =====
 +
 +
 +The Elves had formulated rules or principles for the shaping of heraldic devices, which can be summarized in the following way:
 +
 +  * Devices for males were placed within a lozenge.
 +  * Devices for females were placed within a circle.
 +  * Devices for families, houses or countries were placed within a square.
 +  * The rank of the owner was shown by the number of "​points"​ reaching the outer rim of the device (see below). Four points signified a prince, six to eight signified a king. The oldest of the Elven kings, like Finwe, could sometimes have as many as 16 points.
