Good quality rhodium plated three lions cufflinks from Elizabeth Parker. These brushed metal cufflinks have a width of 16mm and feature twist lock fastening. Today the three lions emblem of the Plantagenets now stands for English football. These stylish cufflinks feature the three lions in brushed metal on a shield and make the perfect gift for anyone supporting English football. With rhodium plating for protection against wear, these three lions cufflinks come in a slimline presentation box and make a charming and thoughtful present.

Origins of the Three Lions
The lions have a history going back to the twelth century, when a standard with three gold lions on a red field was carried into battle to inspire the troops.

The Three Lions - Royal Arms of England The first one came from Henry I - known as the lion of England - who had a lion on his standard on taking power in 1100. Shortly afterwards he married Adeliza, whose father also had a lion on his shield, and to commemorate the event he added a second lion to his standard. In 1154, two lions became three when Henry II married Eleanor of Aquitaine, who - yes, you've guessed it - also had a lion her family crest. Later that century, Richard the Lionheart (1189-1199) used the three golden lions on a scarlet background as a symbol of the English throne and, after that, it appeared on the Royal Arms of every succeeding monarch.

The Football Connection
When the FA was formed in 1863, it seemed natural enough to base their logo on this stirring royal shield. Since then, the design has only been changed once, in 1949 - when the crown that was on top of the lions was removed to differentiate the badge from that of the English cricket team.
