Noble Alejandro Gaston Jantus Lordi de Sobremonte OSSML

Registration: Register Office of Rome No. 11565 Series 3, 24th November, 2016; Coat of Arms Registration Decree No. 8 (2016) published in the Official Gazette, 23rd of January, 2017, Vol. I.

One of the original coat of arms dates from the Middle Ages and was recognized as the ancient coat of arms of the House of Bravo de Sobremonte, ancestral hidalgos (hidalgos solariegos). The ancient parchment lacks the date of the grant, but the date of the last sentence contained therein is 24th March 1556. Therefore, King Carlos the Third of Spain, by Letters Patent dated 9th March 1761, granted unto N.H. Jose Antonio Bravo de Sobremonte y Castillo, Knight of the Order of Santiago, Judge of the Royal Audience of Seville, and Governor of Cartagena de Indias, the Hereditary Title and Dignity of Marquis.

The arms were updated by the Third Marquis, N.H. Rafael de Sobremonte y Nuñez, Knight of the Royal and Military Order of Saint Hermenegild, and Viceroy of the Rio de la Plata, to include motifs representing the military commitment of the Marquis de Sobremonte in his capacity as Spanish colonial administrator. A branch of his family, living in Argentina, added the family name Jantus, and by marriage alliance this line also added the family name Lordi from an ancient Italian family.

The arms were updated again with the Motu Proprio Genus A Me Habet Originem dated 9th June 1975 by N.D. (Lady) Emilia Lordi-Jantus, Head of the House of Lordi-Jantus de Sobremonte, to include the original motifs together with those reflecting more recent familial history. The new armorial bearings represent both the Spanish and Italian sides of the family. Both families have, over the centuries, received several distinctions and titles.
