The Schwarzenberg Coat-of-arms
The German noble family of Schwarzenbergs was originally called the Lords of Seinsheim and their proper emblem was a shield with silver and blue stripes. After the conquest of Raab, the Turkish fortress, the emblem was enlarged in 1599 by Adolf zu Schwarzenberg with head of a Turk, his eyes being pecked out by a raven.

In 1599 Adolf zu Schwarzenberg added a quarter showing the head of a Turk pecked by a raven, to symbolize the conquest of a Turkish fortress in Hungary known in German as Raab ('Raven').
