The College. The College of Arms of the Royal and Serene House of Alabona-Ostrogojsk© has functioned as the ultimate authority on all heraldic matters within the Royal House for many years; however, its permanent duties and responsibilities were firmly established and codified by charter through applicable provisions of the Constitution for the Government and Administration of the Royal and Serene House of Alabona-Ostrogojsk, as revised in 1990. The prerogatives of the Chief and Head of the Name and Arms of the Royal and Serene House of Alabona-Ostrogojsk, through the College of Arms and its officials, is deeply rooted in both International and Dynastic House Law as supported by the legal principles of jure sanguinis and motu proprio. As a permanent institution within the Royal Household, the College of Arms is completely autonomous of any national, international or supranational government, organization or agency, as well as from any religious denomination or other external entity.
Authority. As one may suspect, no heraldic authority enjoys complete and universal authority or acceptance, not even the much respected English College of Arms or the Spanish Chroniclers of Arms. However, Grants and Registrations of Arms issued by this College of Arms are legally recognized throughout the world by other similar institutions with which it is in communion.
Publications. In 1995, the College published it Roll of Arms of the Royal and Serene House of Alabona-Ostrogojsk Volume I and Volume II (1989-1994). This 104-page book has since received international recognition as a valuable heraldic reference and record.
