"Sir William Marshal (1147–1219) was an English (or Anglo-Norman) soldier and statesman [who some have] described as the 'greatest knight that ever lived.'

The coat-of-arms of Nitra is among a group of seals from counties whose “hereditary” counts were bishops, and therefore are dominated by a hagiographic theme. The current Coat-of-arms refers to one of several medieval legends surrounding St. Ladislaus, who was King of Hungary in 1077-1095.
