History

This coat of arms is said[by whom?] to have originated as an abatement of the Lubicz. There are two legends of how this coat of arms appeared:

It is said that one of two (or three) brothers of the Lubicz clan did wrong (krzywda) to the other with respect to his portion of their inheritance, and as a result half of one cross was taken from his coat of arms and the new coat of arms was called Krzwyda (which translates from Polish as "injustice", "greif"). Polish: "Gdy jeden Lubicz przy majątkowym działe brata skrzywdził, utracił za to jedno ramie górniego krzyża."[2]

The other version is that the missing arm was because of a story, which was based on a rule that "The first man to touch a certain piece of land, could claim it". So somebody named Bogucki was in a boat looking for the land, and there were many other boats around him. It looked like others might get to the land first. So in order to claim the land, he cut off his own arm, and threw it to the land, and claimed it as his.[3]

Blazon

In Polish blazon sounds like:

W polu błękitnym podkowa srebrna ocelami w dół zwrócona. W środku niej krzyż kawalerski złoty. Na niej umieszczony krzyż kawalerski złoty bez prawego ramienia. W klejnocie nad hełmem w koronie trzy pióra strusie.

In English:

Azure, within a silver horseshoe ensiegned with a cross pattée sans its right arm, a cross patee both crosses Or. Crest: three ostrich plumes Argent.

In other words, on a blue field there is a silver horseshoe (pointed down) with a gold knight's cross inside it, and another knight's cross missing its right arm on top of it.

Notable bearers

Notable bearers of this coat of arms include:

Some people of this armorial clan received some titles from other counties. For example:

  • Jósef Felix Łasowski – the title of Baron of the French Empire (15 August 1809)
  • Kazimierz Rzewuski – the title of Count of Austria (21 April 1819)
  • Alexander Soszyński – the title of dvoryanin of Russia (1860)[4]
  • and various other members of the latter family received countly titles from Austria and Russia.
