the Imperial Kingdom of Italy from its establishment by Holy Roman
Emperor Charlemagne in the year 855 until the end of its formal
functioning with the rise of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in the
year 1801. From 1801 to the present, the Cronista Re d'Armi remains a
competent authority for Italian coats of arms in general and the
primary authority for Italian coats of arms related to the Holy Roman
Empire, distinct from the Savoy Kingdom of Italy and the Italian
Republic. Today the Cronista Re d'Armi operates under the sovereign
ecclesiastical authority of the Anglican Patriarchate (Stato
Pontificio/Pontifical Roman State, distinct from the modern Vatican
City-State) and may register or grant coats of arms to persons
resident in, born in, or ancestrally affiliated with the territories
of the Holy Roman Empire, specifically Italy, Germany, France, Spain,
and all other European countries, Britain, the Holy Land and the
former Crusader States, North America, and South America. The
Cronista Re d'Armi also certifies genealogy and titles of nobility.
