Additional information

The motto Dieu et mon droit is French for literally "God and my right" (a fuller version of the motto is also quoted as "God and my right shall me defend").

Dieu et mon droit has generally been used as the motto of the English monarch and later British monarchs (except Scotland) since being adopted by Edward III.

It was first used as a battle cry by King Richard I in 1198 at the Battle of Gisors, when he defeated the forces of Philip II of France and after he made it his motto. The belief in medieval Europe was that victory didn't automatically go to the side with the better army but that, as with personal trial by combat, to the side that God viewed with favour. Hence Richard wrote after his victory "It is not us who have done it but God and our right through us". So after his victories on the crusades "Richard was speaking what he believed to be the truth when he told the Holy Roman Emperor: 'I am born of a rank which recognises no superior but God'."
