Yn Ial ac Henry VII

Post by chimera » 19 Sep 2006, 07:08

The yale goat-lion flag of Henry VII is seen in the Hindi "yali" deer with swivelling horns where the rear replaced the front if damaged in battle, becoming unicorn as on Arms of Kings of Scots and UK Arms. Tocharian "yalu" deer of proto-Celts of west China is Assyrian ""ia`ilu" ibex deer, a sacred sacrificial animal, and "yalu" Ethiopian royal symbol carved on palace walls. Does the Tudor Lancaster Beaufort yale derive from IE tribes of north Asia?

The yalu ibex is the same as antelope:
BEAST -- Antelope
"An antelope vs. an ibex] According to Franklyn & Tanner (Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Heraldry, p. 179), "the heraldic ibex is indistinguishable from the heraldic antelope and may even be merely an alternative term." [Thus there is not a CD between them] (Alaric Liutpold von Steinman, September, 1992, pg. 37)".
The de Bohun antelope went west from Brittany in 11th cent. It has swivelling horns:

Thus the Assyrian sacred goat is yale of Tudors. The Royal Welch Fusiliers have a ritual on 1 March where a "most handsome boy" (girl?) rides the regimental goat around the feast-table, to traditional singing. The goat has silver ornaments and used to have garlands of flowers , and leads the regiment, always being with the pioneers.  
Could OBOD give an honorary title to the goat-major, as a symbol of druidism?
