Point of Interest

Royal Windsoria Seal

England / Europe

The Royal Windsoria Seal is surrounded by the words, WYNDLESORIE + COMMUNE BURGENSIUM and can be found in several locations up and down Peascod Street and is known as the Borough Seal. It was used by Windsor officials when dealing with matters about the town. One of its earliest recorded uses was in 1342, when it was appended to a conveyance of rent for the repair of a local bridge. Part of Windsor’s own Coat of Arms is represented in the seal by the three-towered castle. This castle is not a representation of Windsor Castle. It comes from the coat of arms of Eleanor of Castile. She was the wife of King Edward I, who made Windsor a Free Borough in 1276. King Edward I reigned from 1272 to 1307 and also gave Windsor its first Charter. Also in the seal are three lions ‘passant guardant’, the royal coat of arms of the Kings of England.
