It is said that the Coat of Arms has a relationship with Jean Lannes, 1st Duc de Montebello, 1st Prince de Siewierz (10 April 1769 – 31 May 1809) and Marshal of the Empire whose coat of arms has the sword pointing up, in recognition for his relationship with Marie Antoinette and Marius Fenouillet during the First Empire.
