The Quarter Eagle, hand-coloured woodcut (c. 1510) by Hans Burgkmair. One rendition of the coat of the empire was the "Quaternion Eagle" printed by David de Negker of Augsburg, after a 1510 woodcut by Hans Burgkmair. It showed a selection of 56 shields of various Imperial States in groups of four on the feathers of a double-headed eagle supporting, in place of a shield, Christ on the Cross. The top, larger shields, are those of the seven Prince Electors, the ecclesiastical: Trier, Cologne and Mainz as well as of the titular "Prefect of Rome" on the right wing; the secular: Bohemia, Electorate of the Palatinate, Saxony and Brandenburg on the left. The depiction also appeared on the Imperial Eagle beaker.

Over its long history, the Holy Roman Empire used many different heraldic forms, representing its numerous internal divisions.

Holy Roman Emperors[edit]

Further information: List of German monarchs

Starting with Albert II (reigned 1438–39), each Emperor bore arms with an inescutcheon of his personal arms on the torso of a two-headed eagle. (Before 1438 the Emperors would have both a personal and an imperial coat of arms.) The arms of the High Offices of the Empire were borne as an augmentation to the office-holder's personal arms.
