Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above barry of four of Sable and Or, beneath Gules an impending hunting horn Argent and a quadruplemount Or issuant from base.
The mount is reminding on the Counts of Altendorf-Leonberg. The kin owned large estates alongside the rivers Schwarzach, Waldnaab, Isar and Inn. Its lordship had been the origin of the Bavarian Altendorf district (German: Amt). The barry part above is representing the Barons of Schellenberg, the horn the Barons of Horneck, their successors. Both owned the same local manor, the former between 1661 and 1728, the latter until 1780.
