Various authors in Italy have prepared armorials, or heraldry books. An armorial is a collection of descriptions of coats of arms and the families that bear them. It also briefly describes the family’s entitlement to a particular coat of arms. It may also note early bearers of a coat of arms, sometimes with relationships, birth dates, and other genealogical information. Each armorial is different from others and includes different names. Some minor noble families are not included in any books. The following sources are of particular interest in Italy:
