An impressive pedigree, shame about the emblazonment. A decent heraldic artist might make these arms look a lot better. At the moment they remind me of any number of communal arms of Spain or Italy

Disclaimer: I am NOT a competent artist.
I knocked this up with readily available clip art over a cuppa. A competent artist would indeed work wonders.

Sorry Martin, not meant to be a criticism of you (who possess many other talents!), but your version still looks like the arms of some Mediterranean commune. Unfortunately, whoever tries to turn this blazon into a work of art has his/her work cut out.

There seems to be some sort of foundation with the Lordi-Jantus di Sobremonte name. But its web-site is "under construction" and singularly unhelpful. It does however use the arms. Who the "Presidente e Capo dell'Illustrissima Casa Lordi-Jantus de Sobremonte" may be is not stated, but may I suppose be Alejandro.

I tend to agree.

Martin's clip art is better (to my eye, but de gustibus...) but the arms are what they are. If you had them emblazoned by, say, Marco Foppoli, they would certainly look better (oops, meant to say "even better" ;) ) but I suspect Chris would still see them as looking like very well emblazoned communal arms.

But that doesn't bother me. Assuming each of the component parts (the quarters) are as described in the Register entry, the combination is still personal/familial.
