King-of-Arms.
 
An officer whose duty it is to direct the heralds, preside at chapters, and have the jurisdiction of armoury. There are three kings-of-arms in England—viz. Garter, Clarencieux, and Norroy; one in Scotland—viz. Lyon; and one in Ireland, called Ulster.   1
   Bath King-of-Arms is no member of the college, but takes precedence next after Garter. The office was created in 1725 for the service of the Order of the Bath. (See HERALDS.)   2
