Valkenier Family Crest

I got lucky. I come from a family with a long and interesting history. Not gonna lie, it sometimes makes me feel special. For this project I'm going to bring it back - way back. Back to the last recorded name in my family tree: Valkenier.

Day 1: January 14, 2015

Valkenier is a surname of Dutch and Nordic descent. Makes sense since I'm primarily both mixe with a bit of Scottish and a smidge of we-have-no-clue-cause-great-grandma-was-a-husey. Anywho, what I do know is that back in the ancient ole' days my ancestors served in the royal court as falconers, which is where the Valkenier namesake originates from. Because of this, I've decided to take a bit of a Game of Thrones feel to my family crest and see how it develops from here.
