Formal Hall Menu Easter Term Week 1

The Arms of Pembroke College

Pembroke College Cambridge, founded in 1347 by Marie de St Pol, Countess of Pembroke, is the third oldest of the Cambridge colleges, and our coat of arms is likewise steeped in history. The College's coat of arms is formed by halving the coat of arms of the Foundress and her husband, Aymer de Valance and putting the two halves together (they are said to be dimidiated and conjoined.) The arms of the Foundress are on the right, those of Valence on the left.

During the latter's reign, Andrewes served successively as Bishop of Chichester, Ely and Winchester and oversaw the translation of the Authorized Version (or King James Version) of the Bible.
