Dieu Et Mon Droit

Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom
Dieu et mon droit (French pronunciation: ​[djø e mɔ̃ dʁwa]), meaning God and my right[1][2] or literally fr:Dieu et mon droit (My divine right) is the motto of the Monarch of the United Kingdom[2] outside Scotland. It appears on a scroll beneath the shield of the version of the coat of arms of the United Kingdom used outside Scotland.[1] The motto is said to have first been used by Richard I (1157–1199) as a battle cry and presumed to be a reference to the divine right of the Monarch to govern.[3] It was adopted as the royal motto of England by King Henry V (1386–1422)[2][3][4]with the phrase "and my right" referring to his claim to the French crown.[4]
