As Queen Elizabeth II made her way to the doors of Westminster Abbey in 1953 for her official coronation ceremony as Queen of England, she was greeted by 10 personalized heraldic beast statues.

From the Lion of England introduced into the first official Royal Arms by King Richard I in 1198 to the White Horse of Hanover that came to the throne with King George I in 1714, these heraldic beasts represent the many houses and individuals that have control the crown of England over nearly a millennium.
